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. Three major bodies of work engage 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.

PhotoHastings Summer Exhibition “All together, we are different”
The exhibition runs from 19 July 2022 to 29 July 2022 at the Stade Hall, Hastings. This exhibition is running concurrently with Karin’s solo exhibition in Neustadt-Glewe, Germany.
The Private View is on 22 July 2022 from 6.30 to 8.30 pm.
Karin’s picture on the way to the exhibition:
The ruins of Edward III’s Manor House, once an important royal house on the Thames in Bermondsey, have been excavated but kept half hidden for protection under a grassy hill. History peeps out from underneath the edges. Further along the Thames there is Hampton Court Palace with its great formal gardens. The flowers gave no sense of history and the passing of time except that when I photographed them, they were past their prime and fading. The image I created has a feeling of old-fashioned lace, a keepsake that holds the memory of something precious long since gone.
