Camille Katsuragi
New Paintings
5 February - 1 March 2001

We are delighted to present Camille Katsuragi's first solo exhibition at
ART FIRST. Katsuragi graduated from her MA at the Slade in 1998 and is now embarking on a PhD at Chelsea School of Art, after recently completing a diploma in photography at the London College of Printing.

She describes her method of painting as 'an inversion of image-making', a process by which she starts with a photographic negative, and then mentally stops out all the things superfluous to her figures, such as the surrounding landsccape or shadows or colour, so she is left with a ghostly memory.
