New Horizons surveys methods and approaches to landscape painting in the early twenty-first century. Common to each of the works is a modification of the natural world, and a sense in which the world has become magnified, artificial and constructed. While still retaining connections to the familiar, New Horizons proposes an alternate reality where things are not always what they seem.
“Visiting Kate Shaw’s inner-city Melbourne studio is like entering an Aladdin’s cave. Even on the dullest of days her otherworldly landscapes –which feature regularly in the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales – radiate with preternatural brightness.”
