We live in a world that is constantly changing and evolving even the things we take for granted as always being there are constantly in flux. This is the flux that Kate Hammersley captures in her work. Transient moments such as a word spoken in passing, a lightning strike or a shifting horizon line are sources of inspiration in her work which plays on our sensory perception of two and three dimensions, the visual and the tactile, the real and the implied.
