ARTIST INFO

 

About 

 

Catherine Anyango Grünewald is a Swedish/Kenyan artist. She lives and works in Sweden, having moved from London where she taught for ten years at the Royal College of Art.  
 

Her work uses drawing, film, sculpture and mise-en-scene devices to look at physical or domestic environments being disrupted by emotional, intangible phenomena. Her research focuses on drawing and the materiality of drawing tools to explore meaning, exploiting the physical properties of soap, pencil and eraser on paper to convey sensitive and complex themes. She exploits an excess of mark-making that scars her paper surface, paying homage to her subject whilst representing the violated body and providing evidence of her own artistic process. Her drawings are presented in series, in animations and in graphic novels. The process and labour invested in the work is a direct homage to the subjects, victims of violent domestic or institutional crimes.
