Come to close quarters
On the occasion of artist Katrin Koskaru's exhibition "Come to close quarters" in the heart of London's Mayfair, we are gathering for an artist talk over a coffee on a late August weekend.
The London-based Estonian artist Katrin Koskaru is the winner of The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust Prize 2013.
Katrin’s work has been influenced by the landscapes of Estonia and particularly its military architecture. These paintings are permeated by a strong sense of isolation and poetical feeling for the memories resonant within a place. More recently she has been looking at the natural marks of her surroundings and using these as the starting point for many layered abstract paintings.
Get a chance to talk to Katrin in person as she walks us through her solo exhibition.
