Green Chair Gallery’s Latest Exhibition

October 8 – November 11, 2016

Catherine Robinson

Catherine graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University, with a Fine Art degree in which she specialised in printmaking. As Artist in Residence following her degree, she was commissioned to make a print of the encounter between Saint Augustine and King Ethelbert, which now hangs in the university chapel. She uses a range of printmaking techniques including etching, collagraph, drypoint, woodcut and monoprint.

The theme of my recent work has been about the passage of time and of transitions, displacement, movement and change. I have been deeply moved by the stories of migrating refugees around the world and have made a series of prints reflecting their desperate plight. I have also explored the theme of migration in another series of images of cranes flying across similar routes from North Africa to northern Europe. A close involvement with a sufferer of Alzheimers disease led to my work on Memory, reflecting both the states of mental confusion and the simplicity of living totally in the present moment.
