“Resolutions” print by Catherine Chinatree was designed for a window installation at not just a shop, commissioned by Artquest for their 20th anniversary. The work is inspired by the yearly ritual many of us undertake, to do or not do something. As we head further into 2022, the work refers to “taking the plunge” to immerse yourself into something, whatever that may be for you.
The painting is a response to the artists daily ritual of bathing in the Sea at the Walpole Bay Tidal Pool in Margate UK. As a beginner to open water swimming, Catherine has been observing the behaviour of other swimmers, the ecstatic response of submerging in the waters. The ecstasy vs fear of taking yourself out of a comfort zone, to expose the body to the natural element of very cold water, can be emotional, spiritual and physical.
