ABOUT

Kent-based Artist Katie Hayward explores issues of scale, unpredictability and the fragility of desires in her work. Using primarily drawing, collage, ceramics and inflatables she examines human nature, the human body, altered scale and illusion. In using drawing to prepare for potential sculptures or installations, she creates fantastical dream-like Thoughts; which are then followed by ceramic or inflatable creations. Katie graduated from Newcastle University in 2013 and has since gone on to take part in various residency programs and several research projects. She had her first solo show in 2013 and has exhibited in multiple group shows. Most recently, she was selected for the inaugural exhibition and residency at The Koppel Project in London, created work for the National Sculpture Symposium in Riverhill Himalayan Gardens and was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2014 in which she also delivered an Artist’s Talk called Exploring Air and Achieving Largeness in the ICA London. She was most recently selected for the Broomhill National Sculpture Competition 2017 and was Artist in Residence at Tonbridge School.
