THE PANTOGRAPH PUNCH

Kate Stevens West

Kaituhi Tūtahi | Contributing Writer

Kate Stevens West (Kāi Tahu, Pākehā) is an artist who mostly draws and paints, but she does love scissors and the way they slide through the contents of the recycling bin. Her practice revolves around family, those long gone, and those still at her feet. After a long stretch pouring energy into her four children, she started to make work, pushing through the barriers of being untrained, time-poor, and afraid of being laughed at. Stevens West has quickly built up a body of work, now in public and private collections, having participated in several group exhibitions in Dunedin and Wellington. Recent work explores Kāi Tahutaka, working with historical research, traditional paints and pigments. Her solo exhibition Distaff was held at Bowen Galleries in 2023. She is a member of the Dirty Laundry Collective.

Dirty Laundry is a collective of artists and writers whose exhibition at Toi Pōneke explored invisible labour in the home. Here, they use images and words to stitch together a 'crazy quilt' about how they collaborate and carve space for creativity in their busy lives.
