New work by contemporary British artist Kate Dineen

Kate Dineen practices the ancient Indian art of Araash, a fresco painting technique used to decorate walls or stones by combining layers of marble dust and slaked lime, grinding the mixture till smooth and then beating in pigments to make patterns.

Kate Dineen applies this technique to create contemporary minimalist sculptures inspired by Mark Rothko and Anish Kapoor. The results are blocks of single, luminous colour veiling the gallery’s walls. Referencing churches and other places of worship, Dineen achieves with her work to create an atmosphere of serenity and a space for reflection.
