Katherine’s pictures combine gestural marks of reduced colour into mythic apparitions, a product of a lifetime of dreaming and exploring the world of interiors, and the broader world of exteriors. Within the exchange of spaces, and the embrace of the physical world, she has found the ethereal, the ambiguities, and the suggestion of so much more.

“Alchemy” draws on a rich vein of Baroque and Beaux Arts influences, motifs and decorative embellishments translated into Katherine’s own visual language. Bernini’s Italian water fountains and sculptures, grottoes and mascarons, festoons, ribbons, and florals, seep into her paintings.

Welcome to Katherine’s latest  Floral Baroque Alchemy painting series. Exploring and day-dreaming in her early years, the shape, light, and tropical urban wilderness of Sydney’s North Shore on her doorstep – developed her artistic appetite. Winding pathways beside the water, lined with tropical floral explosions fashioned her impression of the sublime – from the microscopic to the grandiose, none of this being accidental. An 8 week artist residency in Rome in 2017 broadened her understanding of ruins, fragments and the eternal.
