Brigitte Watkinson was born and raised in Bavaria and now lives and works in Northwich, Cheshire. She is an interdisciplinary artist working across a range of media and subjects. She is currently studying for an MA in Fine Arts.
Brigitte’s research for her body of work The Kinky Lives of Trees explored the communication between trees led her to visualise their conversations about social and sexual relationships. A visual narrative through an unconventional use of shape, colour and texture offers the viewer a different perspective and insight into the social conduct of trees.
Inspired by her observations and personal experiences as a linguist and teacher, Brigitte’s body of work Crossed Wires explores language, words and meaning. She finds inspiration in current news, linguistic idiosyncrasies and personal experience and applies the materials’ characteristics as a starting point. From there she starts to change, add, advance, conceal and reveal, as the particular work takes form.
I’m Still Alive is Brigittes most recent body of work exploring her own personal and emotional response to the Covid-19 pandemic. With colourful collage elements, paint, print, found objects on current newsprint she weaves a layered, tactile narrative exploring feelings of despair, hope, endurance and optimism.
