kate mieczkowska fine artist
An artist inspired by equestrian sports, the countryside, the people and their animals.
Installations that portray spirituality using matter that we see everyday
Capturing sports horses in action, with their riders
Commentary on life through everyday objects, sometimes viceral
A life with horses
Kate has also ridden since the age of two, and currently works her and her husband’s horses daily in preparation for polo and point to pointing. A lifelong interest in equestrian sports and observational drawing of horses has developed into the artwork we see today. Her paintings are confident in their brushwork denoting this now instinctive understanding of equine form and movement.
Kate’s work has featured on UK TV and in the UK national press whilst she was still at University and more recently in listings in Equestrio Magazine (issue 52) 2013, Country Life Jan 2013, Polo Times Jan 2013 and PQ (Polo Quarterly) Magazine Summer 2011. She has recently exhbited with The Osborne Studio Gallery in London and had shows at Tidworth, Vaux Park and Druids Lodge Polo Clubs in 2013.
‘…I want to go beyond the photographic image and develop the sensuality of the moment through the use of colour and the movement in the brush strokes capturing a feeling rather than simply recording a physical presence’
