Inman Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Katrina Moorhead, titled seapinksea. Opening with an artist’s reception from 6-8pm on Friday, March 8, the exhibition will be on view through April 27, 2018.
Sea pink is a hardy, low-slung perennial native to the UK coastline. Persevering through brackish wind and meager soil, the otherwise unassuming plant produces bright pink blossoms in late spring. It was a fixture of Katrina Moorhead’s early life, and serves as a point of departure for her current exhibition, seapinksea.
Although the work frequently harks back to nature – mediated, hybrid and disjointed nature, but nature nevertheless – its affinity with the sea pink is primarily one of temperament. Like the sea pink’s incongruous bursts of color jutting out over the Atlantic, Moorhead’s sculptures sound notes of weathered but still lively defiance, even as they cling to the end of the earth.
