Details

Following a classical fine art tradition and inspired by Gainsborough's watercolour study, Devon-based painter Kate Westbrook has explored the myth of Diana and Actaeon in an engaging series of paintings that place the tragedy in the landscape of Dartmoor.

Written by the Roman poet Ovid and collected in his Metamorphoses, this classic myth describes the fatal encounter between the hunter Actaeon and the goddess Diana. Enraged that a mortal has seen her bathing naked, Diana splashes water upon Actaeon transforming him into a deer that is killed by his own dogs.

These intricate oil paintings are finely rendered, detailed and atmospheric, and reward close study and quiet contemplation.

Having trained at Bath Academy of Art and Reading University, Kate had her first solo exhibition at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in the USA, where she lived for a number of years. Since returning to the UK, she has exhibited regularly and gained a significant reputation both as a painter and jazz musician.
