Kate Dineen

Contemporary British Artist
Kate Dineen practices the ancient Indian art of Araash, a technique she learnt with a master craftsman in Rajasthan. Araash, or as it is known in English, Jaipuri fresco painting, is used to decorate walls or stones by combining layers of marble dust and slaked lime, grinding the mixture till smooth and then beating in pigments to make patterns.
Kate Dineen applies this technique to create contemporary sculptures of luminous colours.
We will be showing her new work from 21 November 2007 to
18 January 2008.
Go and see this I promise you will not be disappointed just a genius with colour.

I'd love to see this -- the colours are so rich. I need a trip to London, don't I!
