Brigitte Williams - Everything I might need to know at Catlin Art Prize 2011
In May 2011, John Jones was delighted to work with contemporary artist Brigitte Williams in preparation for her exhibition at the esteemed Catlin Art Prize. Brigitte previously won the prize as a Slade graduate in 2007, and this year she returned to exhibit her new project ‘Everything I might need to know’. The Caitlin Art prize was launched by Justin Hammond to reward and encourage the next generation of contemporary artists, championing lesser known talent often fresh from art school. Winners are selected on the basis of their potential to make a significant contribution to the art world in the coming decade, and Brigitte’s own career development is testament to this. Her recent work has become increasingly preoccupied with linguistic and structural patterns underlying our unconscious understanding of the world, reflected in large-scale geometric pieces. She looks to explore the visual representation of subjective ideas, and the clinical nature of her work is enhanced by its digital format.
‘She attempts to analyse the very concept of representation and the boundary that lies between picture and written text’
John Jones worked with Brigitte on the printing for her works, and the resulting project celebrates her own ideas and the high standards on display at Catlin.
The exhibition is open from 18th – 22nd May 2011, please visit www.artcatlin.com for more information.
