About Kate Banazi:
Kate Banazi was born in London, and now lives in Sydney, Australia. Concentrating on the art of silk screen printing, she has worked from art based practice through to fashion, music, illustration and advertising. Her work is experimental, intuitive and often playful, with bold colour and graphic elements a key reference. Science, space travel and colour theory hold great interest and are often referenced in her work. She celebrates the subtle variations of serigraph printing, exploring the layering of colour and graphic elements alongside linear grid structures and hand drawn forms.
Her current work celebrates relationships, identity, movement, shadows and colour, interlocking shapes held together lightly but ready to fall apart. Negative space and line work map chaos, voids and then beauty - a reflection of everyday life in all its unpredictable glory. By exploring the ideas of embracing the flaws in the screen - the silkscreens are un-retouched, pinholes and marks which normally would be repaired, are accepted and celebrated, contrary to the idea of silkscreen printing as a facsimile process.
