Mixed Media, Painting

Tableau, Catherine

About the artist
I’m a mixed media artist working with two dominant materials, plaster and light, to create various textures and gradations of matter. In my practice, I recall compulsively the same process comparable to that of memory: digging up, inflicting mechanical stress, cutting, reconstructing, sequencing, and ensuring consistency. My current series, Time Lines, consists of a body of monochrome cracked mixed media panels. Fragmented patterns, the repetition of architectonic lines, the creation of contrasts between surfaces and intervals give a hypnotic/kinetic effect. Light gives its changing character to the artwork presenting variations that shift with the viewer’s position. Similar to a timeline depiction, the repetition of vertical lines speaks out the human need to read the time addressing questions related to impermanence, memory erosion, accident, choice, and resilience.
