This website features the work of Karin Wach, a German-born artist, writer and psychoanalytic psychotherapist living and working in England. Her work is concerned with loss, memory and transformation. For example, in three major bodies of work it engages with the changes occurring along the Thames through the “transformation of snapshot into medium into painting”. Individual artworks and installations explore other media and concerns.
As part of Coastal Currents and PhotoHastings, Andrea Artz, Alexander Brattell, Colin Booth and Karin took SEA ROAD, the title of their exhibition, as a metaphor for the work that was on show.
“My work in this show follows the gradual building up of litter in the Thames making its way to the sea. In this sense all rivers are sea roads. I include, quite concretely, plastic detritus collected from the Hastings beach in the evening, left there and/or washed up from the sea.”
PS No, I didn’t include it; “the gallery space didn’t like it”.
