Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to present Specimen, a one-person exhibition featuring seven new works from the ongoing series of intricate wall sculptures by Catherine Latson.

About

Careful observation of the natural world, boundless curiosity and patient dedication to craft are manifest in Latson’s fantastical new creature/object sculptures. Catherine Latson, who has a degree in biology, is inspired by the complexities of organization in living organisms. The Specimen Series explores forms that blur the lines between animal and plant, realism and fantasy, sculpture and specimen. Radial symmetry and tentacle structures are common denominators in the mysterious variety of forms in Latson’s newest work. Each wall sculpture describes a hybridized and imagined organism in arrested motion. While materials are simple (cotton embroidery floss and wire), construction is complex, entailing thousands of pieces and countless hours of whipping and knotting. Each piece aims to reimagine the gracefulness, mystery, and complexity of a water-bound organism in motion. For the artist, nature is the text and her full-fledged collaborator. Latson’s intricate “specimens” are framed in acrylic shadow box frames, further amplifying the illusion of a creature being isolated for closer observation and timeless study.

Catherine Latson earned a BA in Biology from Macalester College, St Paul, MN. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, including at The Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY, and in the Macy’s Flower Shows in Philadelphia, PA and New York, NY and has been featured in the American Craft Magazine and The New York Times. The artist works in Yonkers, NY.
