Kate Hush


Part informally trained and part self taught at the back of a sign shop in New York; Kate Hush has been creating light sculptures in the medium of neon for the past decade. Taking part in every step of the process from conception to electrification, she has been shaping visual vignettes of not so righteous women who can’t help but glow among the dark. Inspired by the demeanor and imagery of film noir, and the feminine wit of artists such as Cindy Sherman; Kate found it both appropriate and an epiphany to sculpt these thrilling women out of hot fire and sharp glass. Her work is a unique feminist meets humorist turn amongst the masculine minimalism, or uber-saccharine-text often found throughout the medium. Kate’s work has been featured in galleries and museums around the world, as well as highlighted in various digital and printed publications.
