Live Art Saturday

Kay Lovesah studied Art and Design (University of Birmingham), followed by Creative Imaging (University of Huddersfield). After working in Visual Merchandising, Kay had the opportunity to travel, spending 7 years in Brooklyn, New York, before returning to London.

Unexpectedly, Kay developed a rare eye condition which has permanently restricted her vision. Many surgeries later, Kay has returned to her first love, painting. Her impaired sight enables Kay to perceive things from a different viewpoint, which has lead her to eagerly investigate Abstract Portraiture.

Kay is proud to say that she is currently working on a Solo Exhibition at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, where she is a patient.


Artist Statement

Kay Lovesah is an Abstract Portrait Artist working with Palette Knives, along with various mediums, such as Acrylics, Spray Paints and Inks when creating her paintings. Although her art retains a distinct likeness of her subject, Kay's goal is not about making perfect copies of real life, but deconstructing the forms, values and shapes within the face, whilst working in unison with the medium itself. The form unfolds gradually and is adapted organically, according to the marks that are made in the application of paint onto the canvas. The interest in the finished artwork is as much about the details of the mark-making as the artwork in it's entirety. This adaptive process gives a dynamic and energetic freshness to each individual piece.
