“MEMORIES FOR POSTERITY”

introduction to the catalogue written by the Curator for Tag-Tubes

paintings by Catherine Corfield

It’s a rare occurrence when meeting a stranger that you feel that you have known that person for years. That’s how I felt when I spoke with Catherine Corfield, a painter who creates work that under most *normal times I wouldn’t have dedicated much time looking at it as a personal choice, only because of the genré it follows, not because of the quality of the work. However, lets face it, these are not *normal times, far from it in fact. The paintings that the artist creates are highly skilful and Catherine is an obvious talent, but recently my art intake has been mainly abstraction, or should I say fourth dimensional abstraction, bopping around quantum physics and particles theories. And that is why I love what I do for painters TUBES magazine and the new TAG galleries. It enables me to open my eyes to all forms of Art without prejudice.

Lock Downs…

…The lock down after lock down and the crazy tier system are spreading across Europe far quicker than the actual pandemic itself. The paranoia is real of course, as is the danger of death, especially to my generation (the over 60’s) But, there are other casualties of this god forsaken Sars strain. That is a psychological one and it is just as devastating as the Virus itself. The victims are multiple and the effects are difficult to cope with. First we have the ‘Grandparent or Grandparents’ who are left marooned and alone.

passing of Time…

….They feel the anguish of time passing them by, all too fast. And can they cannot enjoy the absolute pleasures of witnessing their own children’s children grow. They cannot laugh together with the children, a laughter that gives the Grandparents that purest joy that only ones grandchildren can provide. And of course, the children’s own memories of their grandparents as ‘real’ people, not just photographs on a smart phone. These enforced lock downs are robbing all of us, parents, grandparents and children of our most valued moments.

only one answer…

The Parents of those Grandchildren live are in despair that they cannot take their children to visit the Grandparents. Let alone their own inner need to see their Mothers and Fathers and siblings. Time is precious when time is used as a weapon of defence by a society that has been scared witless by the threat of an invisible enemy. And where the only answer from a misinformed establishment is to enforce the populous to retreat into a corner with a digital screen for company and at least something to occupy them for short periods of time.

in need of a heart 2 art…

…A dark psychological corner of isolation, where only a jab in the arm can release a self imposed imprisonment and the social madness that spins. Lets hope to God that that Jab arrives sooner rather than later, for everyones sake and for everyones sanity. It was behind this terrible backdrop that I spoke, for quite some time, to Catherine (by the grace of Zoom). And after the normal polite exchanges I delved deeper into not only her Art, but also her Heart.
