Katy Dove (born 1970 in Oxford, UK) describes experience using animation, sound, drawing and painting. The starting point could be a piece of improvised music made with friends, a walk, or an open-ended drawing. Experiential reference points allow the viewer access to the work through their own experience, in the moment. No previous knowledge is necessary. Universal themes arise as the subconscious mind creates models to explain existence.
Katy Dove graduated from the sculpture department at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee in 1999. Recent exhibitions include solo exhibitions at Hales Gallery, London (2006), Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh (2006) and Sies and Hoeke Gallerie, Dusseldorf (2005). Other projects include Art Statements, Basel (2005) and Art Now, Lightbox, Tate Britain (2003), Tramway, Glasgow (2007); Platform, Easterhouse, Glasgow (2007).
