Catherine Pickop’s practice

Watch Catherine Pickop’s video to find out more about the artist practice.

Repetition, stillness, and rhythm are essential elements in my work, each painting is my yearning for harmony of order and beauty. Each painting started with scoring on paper with precision, mineral pigment is applied on the scored paper afterwards.The transparent lines appeared become a white line on the surface. The gesture of rubbing mineral pigments on paper using my body temperature, skin and the pressure of my fingers alone to control the tonal movement in colour is for me, an intimacy between my body, mind, paper and the medium. The sound and scent, as well as the feeling, is therapeutic, meditative and liberating.
