Catherine is a Colombian visual artist based in Auckland. Her body of work comprises curation, research, writing and ceramics.
An accomplished visual artist in her country of origin, she moved to Auckland to deepen her practice by further understanding the relationship between Latin American and Pacific culture. As Curator for The Consulate General of Colombia, she develops educational programmes and art workshops that aim to help with the settlement of the Latin American community in New Zealand.
The artist’s work examines the process of ceramic-making, imbuing layers of clay with memory and history. Often collaborative and experimental, she activates these vessels as meaning-making and storytelling tools. The results challenge our assumptions about the medium while enduring as deeply sensory objects.
Her passion for children and their creative mind inspires her to design and develop art experiences using all sorts of art techniques and surfaces to keep learning from the materials and their possibilities.
