Katherine Perrott

The magic of nature offers both lyrical beauty and unpredictable powerful force.

About

“Through the making of art, my own personal relationship with the world is explored. I consider the ways in which people interact with the environment and more specifically the domestic and the wild. The magic of nature offers both lyrical beauty and unpredictable powerful force. In an attempt to feel secure and comfortable we surround ourselves with trinkets and artefacts that offer a sense of security and familiarity. Yet at the same time we experience a pull towards the wild and dangerous. As an artist, this pull between the wild and domestic challenges and provokes me. The environment is an intrinsic part of our lives, it sustains us at a very basic level and I often find myself asking, at what point are we prepared to forego nature for our domestic comforts. In all my paintings I like to include a backdrop of nature, as a reminder of the wild places from which all things come and into which I love to go.” Katherine Perrott, 2015.
