About The Artwork

Currently on exhibition, 8 to the 28 of July 2023, 'Waipori Falls Lightcatcher' exhibition. Moray Gallery Dunedin NZ. The vibe of this painting is the dance of the Fantail. Fantails dance through the forests doing pirouettes, flips, and flits. The orbs of light are like the glowing footsteps, a visible path danced through the forest, the fantail's choreography; the forest being the most magical dance room with dance moves to match. I like the idea of a residual effect on the eyes of the magical movements of birds in particular. The painting Lightstreams has this theme also. As an expression of aesthetic unification,’ Lightcatcher’ conveys the concept of the forest and its underlying ecosystem as a singular entity: a vibrant scintillating life-structure arrayed with minuscule leaves, twigs, ferns, and wisps of moss, all bound up in an intricate matrix of light.

ARTIST STATEMENT “My work strives to depict the hum and dynamic interplay of colours and light, water and sky. Life: the warm sands alive with cockles; the light angling through the trees; the myriad reflections in a deep pool of water. I want the raw image, the organic aesthetic to enliven the canvas and the space it goes on to inhabit.” Kate Williamson, artist. “The artist explores this analogy by creating landscape forms which strip away the reality of the scene to replace it with something that gives the impression of moving liquid. This is particularly evident in the earth-fire-and-water composition Pool of colours, where the solidity of the landforms seem to melt into a flow of hue and light. A similar suffusion of solid elements is found in the sun-drenched Orb. More tangible lands emerge in the high country valley of Origin and mountain meadow of Light Scatter II, but it is perhaps in the deep molten undergrowth and solid branches of Forest Lights that the exhibition reaches a peak.” James Dignan, arts reviewer.
