Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Kate Giles was born in 1962. She studied printmaking and life drawing in London at the John Cass School of Art and Morley College and holds a degree in Fine Art with Honours distinction from University of Brighton.   Rooted in classical English and Dutch landscape painting, Kate's style is contemporary impressionism.

She received her first solo exhibition in 1992 and has exhibited consistently since that time at galleries throughout the United Kingdom as well as in New Hampshire and New York. Recently her paintings were exhibited at the Toronto International Art Fair (TIAF).

“It is not enough to read a deep understanding of the English and Dutch landscape traditions and a keen awareness of contemporary practice in the paintings of Kate Giles. She forces a language onto the canvas that is indivisible from herself. Seeing landscape as paint, she inspects its surface as one would the surface of a finished canvas. Pigment will flow through culverts and paint will drain from the sky. Giles wrings every last drop of juice from the spareness of a particular part of Suffolk; she squeezes it onto her canvas, fusing rhythms and counterpoints with a particular emotional intellect. Ultimately, she finds harmonies that are unique to her. “
–Laurence Edwards, contemporary British sculptor and artist, 2007.
