Kate Tedman, born in England in 1979, began her art career in 2001 as part of the international art collaboration ‘Kate Eric,’ alongside US artist Eric Siemens. Working with San Francisco Gallery Wendi Norris, they displayed paintings and sculptures in the USA, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Tedman has gone on to pursue a solo practice as well as forming Tedman&Strand, a collaborative identity with US based artist Samantha Strand. Tedman&Strand predominately work with textile and embroidery, producing installations in collaboration with C|E Contemporary in Milan, Italy and Galerie Eulenspigel in Basel, Switzerland.
Tedman has always been intrigued by the concept of collaboration and continues to challenge the traditional cult of identity of the solo artist. Woven throughout the collaborations and solo work is Tedman’s distinctive blend of the ornate, melancholy, antique, textural, absurd and unexpected. A binary take on complex emotions.
