Catherine Latson
Specimen Sixteen, Framed Sea Nature Inspired Hand-dyed Fiber Sculpture in Purple

2019

$7,500

About

Framed in a clear acrylic shadowbox, Catherine Latson's Specimen Sixteen reads as an artistic rendition of a beautiful sea specimen. Rich, jewel-toned burgundy purple hand-dyed cotton thread is wrapped around tendrils that stretch from a delicate cluster of tiny curls in the center toward pale ivory ends that curve gently outward. 26 inch diameter x 4 inches deep (unframed), 32 x 32 x 4.75 inches (framed in acrylic shadowbox). The Specimen Series is inspired by sea anemones and the motion of a water-bound world, exploring forms that blur the lines between animal and plant, realism and fantasy, sculpture and specimen. Each wall sculpture describes a mysterious, hybridized and imagined organism in arrested motion. Latson’s complex artworks belie her simple materials. The artist hand-dyes embroidery floss in variations of a single dominant color and wraps the thread tightly and skillfully around her armature. The construction of each work entails countless hours of whipping and knotting resulting in dense, rich color and graceful, compelling compositions. Catherine Latson earned a BA in Biology from Macalester College, St Paul, MN. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, including at The Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY and in the Macy’s Flowers Shows in Philadelphia, PA and New York, NY and has been featured in the American Craft Magazine and The New York Times. The artist works in Yonkers, NY.
