Catherine Parkinson, How Roots and Stems overcome all Difficulties, watercolours and drawings. Tue 20 Feb - Mon 2 Apr

This work explores the ingenuity and stoicism of plants faced with adversity, and also their fierceness and resilience.  I aim for scientific accuracy but I also want to communicate the ways plant behaviour can resonate with our own.  To facilitate this I paint onto fabric covered in plaster of Paris.  This surface can make it hard to control the paint, causing the image to evolve in surprising ways.

Catherine is an artist and mosaicist.  She also teaches drawing and mosaics.. Examples of her work can be seen at : www.catherineparkinson.com
