Found surfaces, manipulated and altered, are one of the hallmarks of the surprising work of catherine bertola. The patterns she creates on these surfaces are reminiscent of textiles and wallpapers found in homes from another time. Far from an exercise in creating simply decorative things, her "haunting and evocative art uses the debris of humanity - decay in the form of dust, the stuff of human passage. 'Women are traditionally trained to notice it, erase it, halt its pervasiveness. Only a bad woman would collude with it, invite it in, reconstitute it'". Ah, pretty and deep. What a lovely combination don't you think?
Lovely link from cally creates.
