Liminal Gallery presents 'Again Again', a solo exhibition by Margate-based artist, Catherine Chinatree. Created during her transformative Artist Residency in Motherhood amidst Sintra's picturesque landscapes in Portugal, these new artworks are powerful reflections of her experience.
Immersed in the vibrant tapestry of local life and culture for three months, Chinatree embarked on the artistic journey alongside her young son. The resulting works on paper capture the essence of her surroundings, resonating with the repetitive rhythms of artistic creation and everyday life. This series intricately weaves together themes of motherhood and the significance of everyday rituals, delving into the realms of social surrealism. Symbolising personal journeys and the echoes of historical narratives, including colonial histories, the artworks portray the ebb and flow of movement. Water, a recurring motif in Chinatree's work, carries its inherent symbolism of fluidity and transformation, interwoven with the ethereal strands of Romanticism.
'Again Again' stands as a testament to Chinatree's immersive research methodology, blending elements of the fairytales, myths, and folklore that are deeply rooted in Sintra's rich historical tapestry. This series of works invite viewers on a visual voyage through the realms of personal and cultural exploration.
All are welcome to join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Again Again’ on Saturday 22nd July 5-8pm.
