Katharine West is an artist who works primarily in clay. Central to her process are phenomena associated with nature: landscape, seascape and the human body. Archetypal form as it relates to our collective past and memory is exploited through connections between the resonance of the object, matter, and fluidity. Tension between internal space and external form, and the void are explored within the context of the malleability of the material. The objects play with space, light, form and illusion. They contain air and question the solidity of the object itself.
