For me mosaic artist Kathryn Bossy's challenge piece was all about the wind and its interaction with the laundry. I'm remembering hanging my laundry out on the line on a very blustery day, fabrics flapping in the breeze, colours flashing and the movement all against a summer blue sky.
"I do not replicate nature. I am inspired by the improvisation of my environment."
About the Artist
Through bold marks and a feel for colour working in layers, Ottawa artist Catherine Gutsche uses a process driven method to capture her joy for the unpredictability of her practice. She creates intricate non-representational compositions, often alluding to forms in nature but highly abstracted, driven by a need to “engage my mind and express my connections to my environment”.
The 7 Works Collective challenges have stretched my usual approach into new areas, experimenting with new techniques, new materials and altered styles. Who knows what will come out of these exercises in the future. "Play" makes artists grow.
