Katherine Perrott is resident artist at the Salamanca Arts Centre. She works in oils on canvas and linen and recently moved to Tasmania from Melbourne.
“Through the making of art, my own personal relationship with the world is explored. The magic of nature offers both lyrical beauty and unpredictable powerful force. In my recent body of work, I have explored the diverse environment of Kunyani / Mount Wellington and the ongoing and endearing relationship walkers, inhabitants and recreational users have with the mountain. My paintings attempt to evoke a feeling of tenderness, and a love for nature that for some of us is an intrinsic part of our lives. The paintings are an honouring to the magnificence of the mountain, it’s ancient trees, ferny glades, its breathtaking views, and mist filled valleys.” Katherine Perrott, 2015
The From which the table is laid exhibition is at the Studio Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre during August.

“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.
In my recent body of work, I have 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. My 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.
Sometimes objects give us something to anchor ourselves, as metaphors, to life and identity… for a moment in time… a beautiful fleeting moment.’
