Kate McCarthy’s sculptures and paintings are soft distortions of the everyday, bent through the lens of emotional memory. Through these translations, her art depicts an interplay of emotions, textures, colors and forms. By painting playful creatures, armchairs, and bathtubs, McCarthy gives the viewer a chance to see how our feelings might change the way we look at our everyday items.

McCarthy’s solo shows include Penny Contemporary, 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace, and Matthew Rachman Gallery. McCarthy is the recipient of Arts Connect Grant from Arts Tasmania and Artsbridge, both in 2017. Kate McCarthy lives and works in Hobart on Tasmania's East Coast.
