Katherine Lavocat

Curated by Marie-Thumette Brichard

“Katherine and I also exhibited together in ARTAPESTRY. I was impressed by her work and also by her career. She has a very particular way of weaving her tapestries, playing with the warp to get vibrations and relief, using hand-spun wool with touches of sisal, silk and nylon, and preparing her own natural dyes. All this makes her tapestries easily recognizable and unique.”

-Marie-Thumette Brichard

“Maximo Laura: Eternal Vision

Curated by Patricia Armour

“Maximo Laura: Eternal Vision  is an exhibition about the sea and the colours of sea life. The collection is an impressive display of brilliant colour transmitting an overpowering sense of awe. This is the work of a Master who knows how to use colour and design to bring together a world of beauty and life beneath the sea.”
– Patricia Armour, Curator
