Catherine James’ practice is grounded in print and combines traditional techniques with digital technologies to produce work in traditional and digital media. Her work exploits the materiality of physical media and the immateriality of digital processes, and considers the historicity of print and photography.
The work in this exhibition explores the act of looking into spaces usually considered private – a theme that has become increasingly relevant over the past year.
Catherine trained as an academic Obstetrician and Gynaecologist before completing a Fine Art Foundation diploma (Morley College) and an MA in the History of Art (Courtauld Institute of Art). Both clinical and historical training influence her creative work. Catherine is currently working on a London Arts and Humanities Partnership (AHRC) project focused on early printed material in the rare book collection at the Royal College of Physicians.
