Catrin Llwyd

Lives and works in Cardiff

Bio: The work begins usually with fervent scrolls through pre-existing imagery found on the web, going from images of Americana, urban spaces to film stills possibly only connected by a single #.

On selecting images of which to adopt dissect and use as source material, their actual content is arbitrary. Through this intuitive selection process, there is a potential in the image.

The speed of an exploratory scroll is quick, and results in appropriately small oil and watercolour works with urgency. There is finite space to represent, and working in small scale forces all decisions to be concentrated in some cases, down to no more than a dozen marks.
