Oil on board 18 x 24 cm
Catherine Knight’s latest body of work entitled “I’ll be your mirror” is inspired by photos she took of Loch Goil in Argyllshire, Scotland several years ago, which have stayed with her ever since. She was particularly drawn to the symmetry of the reflections, the minimalism of the compositions and the tone of the setting.
Catherine thinks of the paintings as a set of opposites: Spoken/Unspoken, Above the surface/Below the surface, Remembered/Forgotten, Conscious/Subconscious. The horizon line is the balance point and you can go either way- into the real or into the depths. As you look at them you forget what is sky, what is reflection, what is solid, what is liquid.
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 was also selected for the Discerning Eye Exhibition 2015.
