Kate Davis – Not Just the Perfect Moments

An essay by Dr Dominic Paterson (History of Art, University of Glasgow) published on the occasion of Not Just the Perfect Moments a solo show by Kate Davis.

‘[Roland] Barthes writes of the ‘uneasiness of being a subject torn between two languages, one expressive, the other critical’.  I think that drawing is the medium which allows Kate [Davis] to expose the two registers, expressiveness and criticality, to each other, and to open out an intimacy which is at the core of her practice’.
