Kate Boxer is an artist of vitality and wit. She sees animals and humans in a quirky whimsical and highly individual way and there is an engaging eccentricity to much of her work which makes you laugh out loud.
Kate is a skilled print maker as well as an accomplished artist, with her sure sense of line and unusual colour. She often adds her own personal jokes into the titles of her work, indicative of her free spirit and original take on life.
The film maker Bruno Wollheim notes their ‘engaging eccentricity’ that comes ‘from a fierce understanding of their innate spirit. The snake, bison, or sand-bird are above all themselves, they express their own independence and individuality, with all the implicit comic tragedy... they are free.’
As George Melly once described Kate Boxer as ‘a remarkable creative spirit: her images and the means to realise them are at one.’
