The Settlers. Katrine Roberts.
Bold, lurid colours confront the viewer, yet the portraits hold a quiet melancholia, which unravels over time. The initial innocence of which the paintings seem to embody becomes subverted. Using toxic coloured paint I disfigure traditional portraiture through a process of application and removal. This is led by a fascination with corrupting and fusing the boundaries of what a face is expected to be.
