Kat Phillimore’s practice focuses on portraits that capture the sitter’s mood and try’s to reveal more than the surface value of a photograph that would simply freeze a moment. Her artwork is expressive, often titled with a personal humour reflective of moments of her life, distortion and a unique palette create a language that articulates the emotive beauty of a perceived world.
Phillimore was born in Melbourne, Australia. In 2007, she attended VCA briefly after high school however it wasn’t until taking a break from making art that she regained momentum and had her first solo show in 2013 at No Vacancy Project Space. Since then she’s been involved in several group shows, collaborated with creative projects, music festivals, and had another six solo shows at various galleries around Melbourne.
