Performing Drawology: Featured Artist: Catherine Bertola 26 January 2016

Catherine Bertola’s work involves creating installations, objects and drawings that respond to particular sites, collections and historic contexts.  Underpinning the work is a desire to look beyond the surface of objects and buildings, to uncover forgotten and invisible histories of places and people, as a way of reframing and considering the past.

Catherine Bertola was born in Rugby in 1976; she studied Fine Art at Newcastle University, where she lives and works.  She has worked on a number of commissions and exhibitions, nationally and internationally with institutions such as; Museum of Arts and Design, New York, USA; Kunsthalle zu Kiel, Kiel, Germany; Artium, Vitoria Gastiez, Spain; Temple Gallery, Philadelphia, USA; Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, UK; National Museum Wales, Cardiff, UK; V&A, London, UK; The Government Art Collection, National Trust and Crafts Council, UK.

She has work in several public and private collections and is represented by Workplace Gallery, Gateshead and M+R Fricke, Berlin
