Katherine Perrott’s paintings explore our relationship with the environment
Originally from Melbourne, Katherine Perrott moved to Tasmania in 2013 and became a Resident Artists at Salamanca Arts Centre. Katherine works in oils on canvas and linen.
“Thought the making of art, my own person relationships with the world is explored. The magic of nature offers both lyrical beauty and unpredictable powerful force. Just as a leaf is taken by the wind and swept along by the ethereal currents, we too are swept up in unexpected forces, challenges, dreams, yearnings and losses”
– Katherine Perrott
In Katherine’s recent works she has painted clothes, chairs and tricycles being swept through a skyscape to symbolise the transient nature of the objects and desires we find or surround ourselves with. Her paintings attempt to evoke a feeling of tenderness, and a dance with the other; the beauty of the relationship both past and present. Perhaps a longing or a remembering of something or someone that once has lost or been separated from.
