Kate Smith's work over the last decade has been exclusively drawing based and investigates gesture, mark and trace. It reveals, recreates and documents residual marks and indicators of contact and ranges from large, meticulously rendered drawings to collections of accidental, intentional and found marks. Digital media are explored alongside the traditional, using a digital pen and tablet to create drawings which are then printed at actual size, raising questions about how work is produced, encountered and valued.

Recent work deals specifically with residuals and trace - washing, erasing and combining media which may or may not fade over time - leaving an echo of the original mark making.
