The themes and interests of Kate Corder’s artwork have varied over the years. In her formative years, living on Somerset’s Blackdown Hills, landscape and gardens were an early inspiration. Drawing and painting were at that time a key element in her practice. At Winchester Art School Kate explored painting techniques using oil on canvas and paper. Her paintings cited mythology, swans, landscapes, rivers, beaches, human figures and sense of site and place. Moving to London after Winchester Kate studied printmaking techniques at Central St Martins, making extensive series of etchings, lithographs, linocuts and woodcuts.
These prints include hints of rave culture, art history and humour and are also reference paintings and drawings Kate was making at the time, as a cross pollination. The lithographs originally drawn on stone or metal plates have varied subjects, some pertaining to ‘mythology’ (human figures) and others ‘play’ (female with companion toy animals, rabbits, cats or dogs). Other lithographs nod to Picasso and the images are perhaps more brutal, referring to the AIDS crisis or animal / human cruelty. Some of the images are set in landscapes, other are interiors and some show New York city (with the Twin Towers). Kate’s linocut subjects mostly continue themes of companion animals. Some of her prints are black and white and others are colour. Kate’s woodcut are mostly black and white with subject matter ranging from gloved hands, boots, shoes, handbags and flowers (lilies, roses, cornflowers and tulips). The woodcuts tend to have a minimalist quality. Etchings made by Kate Corder are perhaps more rare and are mainly black and white. The subject matter is also concerned with companion animals, playful rabbits and dogs.
