About

Katie Chatburn says: ‘My composition ‘Dear Christine’ draws upon all the paintings in this exhibition and is an emotional response to the narrative of Christine Keeler’s life. The refrain reflects being ‘caught in a loop’, as it struck me that variations on Christine’s story still play out across society - in politics, in the media and our workplaces.

At the heart of it is a sense of incantation or a prayer for Christine, melancholy, fragile, but infused with hope and dignity in the face of such overwhelming pressure."

Commissioned by curator Fionn Wilson for the exhibition 'Dear Christine  (a tribute to Christine Keeler)'.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and Arts Council of Wales.
