Kathryn is no astronomer; neither does she profess to be a photographer. Nevertheless, each of the paintings in her ‘Wonderment’ collection might carry the subtext, ‘This is not a photograph’ such is the realism displayed in her portrayal of galaxies, planets and the northern lights. This is not an entirely new venture for her as it was her Nightlight paintings which first displayed her fascination with space. But ‘Wonderment’ shows significant development in her technique and understanding of celestial bodies whilst also borrowing elements of her ‘Kaleidoscopic’ and ‘Contemplation’ painting collections.
The Wonderment Collection launches in London on Sunday 26th November 2017 at The Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Pall Mall until Saturday 2nd December, 10am to 6pm daily. It can then be viewed by appointment at the Studio in Poole.
