"Catherine Brooks has been working tirelessly to expand her artist "vocabulary". Through her successes and failures, Brooks feels like she has finally learned what is important to her art, and what it is to explore during the creative process. Brooks has developed her own personal mythology, based around the legends and tales passed down and weathered through oral tradition and the rise and fall of empires. They reflect her ideas on love, memory, and the inexplicable human talent for personifying assigning responsibility to the cycles of life, and its manifestations. It was, for the artist, a beginning, a birth. It is a collection of pearls and remnants, an allusive menagerie of natural diplomacy, sensual symbiosis, and hints of great tales and legends to come.

Brooks has a BFA in Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute of Art and Design in Brooklyn, NY and completed a residency at Campus Hanoi in Vietnam. She has shown regularly in galleries over the past two years. Highlights of her resume include a solo in NYC at The Proposition Gallery in 2007 and taking part in last year’s SCOPE London." quote

Anne-Marie Kornachuk

"I named this body of work Airs Above the Ground because I am interested in looking at states of being; spaces and events that create many questions and answers, and can be looked at in positive and negative ways. My figures are seen caught in the split between air and ground. Is it fantasy or reality, clumsiness or grace, contentment or anxiety, playfulness or anger, need or independence?

I use gesture, colour, and composition to suggest these states. The formal dress struggles with rigidity and confinement, perhaps societal expectations, internal pressures, as well as beauty, seduction, luxury and sophistication.

It is my intention to create a narrative, allowing the viewer to explore in which state of being the figure falls. "
