Natasha Kidd’s work has continually involved the production of machines or systems that paint. This practice based research emerges out of a desire to make visible the process, action and event of painting itself and to place the viewer directly in the site of production. These ideas form the basis for Kidd’s current doctural study at the Ruskin School of Fine Art at the University of Oxford. She has shown her work internationally and throughout the UK in galleries that include Modern Art Oxford, Camden Arts Centre, London, the Lowry, Manchester, the Royal Academy, London and the Liverpool Biennale. Kidd is a senior lecturer in Fine Art at Bath School of Art and Design and an Associate Lecturer on the BA Fine Art course at Chelsea College of Art and Design.
