KATHERINE HAMILTON

Katherine Hamilton completed a bachelor’s degree in 1998 in Fine Arts at The University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Pietermaritzburg, majoring in Printmaking and Philosophy, 

She began taking photos while working as a photographer’s assistant in 2006 and has since become interested in photography as a fine art medium, to which she tries to add a painterly and graphic quality.

Katherine is interested in the concept of memory and forgetting. The way we see experiences versus what they truly are, and how our emotions and beliefs change these, as they are collected in our minds. Each memory can shift according to one’s state of mind, and the distance along the timeline that one is, from the actual experience.

Her current abstractions of nature convey the transience of experiences that form memories and imprints in our minds – often faded, and unclear when later recalled.

Her images either show motion, abstraction or a slight ‘blur’ and shift in focus. There is a shared calmness in the works; they are ‘designed’ to possibly evoke a sense of nostalgia, but are equally open to the viewer’s individual interpretation and personal response.
