Catherine Higham

Paintings and drawings which explore ideas of representation and relational aspects of space and form, figure and ground, deliberate intervention and serendipity.

My work is concerned with the materials and processes of landscape, both natural and fabricated. Land form, surface and space; water; vegetation; light; weather; built structures; habitats for humans/wildlife; time and change are central elements of my practice.

The flat surface of canvas or paper is my chosen medium. Although rooted in ‘landscape’, my current artwork investigates ideas of representation and relational aspects of form and non-form; precision and spontaneity; absence and presence.

Methods of working involve deliberate actions (application of marks, tone, poured paint) and serendipity (allowing the materials to follow their own request).  As with landscape, the resulting artwork is simply a record of its own making.

I seek to make raw, simple images in an age of visual stimulation and information overload.
