'Re-Wilding VI (Heart)'

Cath Hughes

'Re-Wilding III'

Cath Hughes

North Vancouver based multidisciplinary artist Cath Hughes creates layered, colourful collages & mixed media works exploring our relationship to the environment & our own selves.

Re-Wilding is series of collages on paper developed in response to issues of climate change & a questioning as to what this term might mean, both for civilization, & for us as individuals. How can we ‘re-wild’ ourselves & our planet, to find fecundity of our imaginations, our hearts, & our habitats?

Imagery used in these collages is wide ranging, referencing ecology, lost civilizations, our changing relationships with exploration beyond our planet, & modern & contemporary architecture & domestic interiors. The pieces are composed around an epicentre of neutral hues or grayscale tones, which are ‘re-wilded’ with colour as the compositions evolve outwards, just as we must evolve.
