oil on canvas 150cm x 110cm
In this work Catherine Knight explores her fascination with family history. The process of sifting through old family photographs of people who are part of her, yet quite unknown, and this motivation feeds into many of her paintings. Created from found photographs together with guidebook images and postcards, these works toy with perspective and scale. They mirror how family histories and personal mythologies are half- remembered, smoothed over, and exaggerated over time.
Photographs ultimately offer limited information and their full story is not revealed. Made from images collaged together, mixing places, times and histories, the playfulness in the paintings creates new narratives and alternative realities.
