Catherine Harrison is inspired by history, decay, cycles, nature, meaning and symbolism and these themes are referenced in her work. There is a clear interest in alchemy and how a variety of metals can be changed and manipulated through various corrosive chemicals and forces.
Her work also expresses fascination with found objects already corroded by nature’s elements. Whether the metal objects are found, new, old or used, they already come with associated meanings. Through experimenting, constructing and transforming these materials, Catherine brings a new perspective and life to these objects.

Based at Arena Studios, Liverpool.
