About the Exhibition
In a series of paintings, Katherine Bull continues her exploration of online image archives as a kind of prosthetic consciousness. Taking her starting point in random scrolling through Instagram posts, the selected and layered images shift as they are translated into watery ink washes on cotton. In the process, the images of human-animals dissolve and transform as they spread into stains that are fixed, yet slippery to recognize in their fluidity. This meditative process of painting in the peripheral zone between figurative and abstraction is for the artist a space of externalising an inner search for the nature of self in the face of personal loss and grief.
