About the event
Bridging the divide between motherhood and the art-world has proved to be a catalyst for an exciting new body of work. Partly auto-biographical, acclaimed artist Katherine Jones has taken the archetypal children’s playground and the objects and things a child uses on a daily basis and has employed these as a starting point for the works in “TITLE OF SHOW.”
The fascination of the familiar objects of childhood playgrounds; roundabouts, climbing frames, and the apparatus which form secure considered places for children’s play have become Katherine's means of expression for describing her personal experiences of witnessing her own children’s development as they begin to learn about the world around them.
Starting from drawings, watercolours and maqueetes, the final prints evolve through the lengthy proofing process. Working intuitively and with a flexibility to her approach Katherine’s prints are built up through the collographic process, which can be used for both intaglio and relief printmaking. The ‘plate’ comprises a range of textures which transfers the ink to the paper through the printing process. This method of working and creating imagery gives Katherine the ability to work in a fluid and painterly manner.
The exhibition also comprises of three dimensional pieces which have been made alongside as well as informing the final prints.
