Artist Bio

Part informally trained and part self taught at the back of a sign shop in Brooklyn, 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 and humorous turn among the usual masculine minimalism, or uber-saccharine-text heavy medium. Kate’s work has been featured in galleries, museums, fine art publications, as well as commissioned for several high profile ad campaigns. She is based in Detroit, Michigan, where she hopes to help create a neon education program and center in the near future.
