Gouache on watercolour paper
21cm x 14cm
Catherine Knight’s latest body of work, Isolation Windows, was created during the first national lockdown in March 2020 when the artist, like the rest of the UK, found herself at home with her two small children, in isolation and unable to work in her studio. Her response was to reach out to the world via social media, inviting people to take images of the views from their windows and to email them to her. Catherine then used these images to create small gouache paintings during the evenings of lockdown. For many of the participants, the project has helped to reaffirm a connection to the outside world during the global pandemic. Catherine received images from 16 different countries around the world and has recently compiled a book Isolation Windows featuring 81 of the paintings she completed from March to July of the first national lockdown in the UK.
Cavaliero Finn and Catherine Knight will donate 20% of all proceeds from the sale of Catherine’s Isolation Windows paintings to the homelessness charity Shelter.
Many people struggling with bad housing and homelessness have already endured the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic without a safe place to live or a window of their own to look out of. Shelter helps these people through advice, support, and legal services.
Catherine completed her MA in Fine Art at Bath Spa University. In December 2014, six of Catherine’s paintings were selected for the Discerning Eye exhibition – one now resides in its permanent collection. Catherine’s work has since been selected for the Discerning Eye Exhibition several times, as well as being selected for the Beep Painting Prize in 2018.
