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.
Karin will be exhibiting her work With Reference to the Tower at the Hastings Arts Forum Members’ exhibition (Hastings Arts Forum, 36 Marina, St Leonards on Sea, TN38 0BU) from 20 March to 1 April 2018.
The preview is on Friday 23 March from 6.30pm.
WITH REFERENCE TO THE TOWER
The single photograph is of the Tower Bridge balustrade allowing glimpses of the Thames below. The formal lay-out of the completed image echoes the architecture of the chapels in the Tower of London. It affirms the relationship between the neo-Gothic bridge and its ancient neighbour.
