Paintings, prints and general mark making; working towards creating a sense of light and space.
The works in this exhibition are predominantly landscape with some paintings and prints of flowers to.
My work to date is about exploring my relationship with the external world and personal memories through various media, including collage, chemical and natural materials as well as more traditional media, like oils.
I am currently working on pieces inspired by the natural landscape of the Lothians that we visited as part of the landscape course last year. This body of work continues the approach towards freer mark making employed in Junction Bridge with the methods of college used in the earlier pieces in this exhibition.
Katharine has an interest in unseen generational connections and in conveying the role of the subconcious in ourselves and others. Ideas around the place we occupy in nature, time and space are also of importance to her, as are thoughts about the nature of form and its paradoxical link to emptiness. Many years of working with plants have played an important role and present an area of enquiry she wishes to develop.
