Katy Moran – close to awful

Artist Katy Moran says “When I’m making a painting, I get quite excited by how close to awful I can push it, while getting something quite lovely as well.”

Working from images taken from a variety of sources, from magazines, the internet or from  her mobile phone  camera,  she pushes the images towards abstraction on small scale canvases. In this Tate Channel video, for an exhibition in 2008 called Strange Solution, she comments on her practice.
