ARTIST Katherine Sheers will be making an appearance tonight at Foxy's Deli for her exhibition Undercurrent.

Undercurrent is a recent body of figurative work by Mrs Sheers - who is the wife of poet Owen Sheers.

Her work features both original works on paper and limited edition giclée prints.

Mrs Sheers said: "Last year something in me broke. Following the premature birth of my youngest daughter I developed severe postnatal depression.

"Inhabiting the imperfection of motherhood, intimately aware of the raw vulnerability of the body and self, I surrendered to a humbling lack of control.

"Drawing with my daughter held close to my body, her presence began to direct the marks I made - both literally as I used my hands interchangeably to smudge pastels and dip feathers into ink to strike the page, and figuratively as her weight and warmth against my chest led me to draw from a place of love.

"During the making of this work I’ve experienced a willingness to carry and be carried - I don’t feel wholly responsible for the figures that have emerged, but I do wish to honour their fragile flesh and serpentine emotions."

Katherine Sheers trained at Chelsea College of Art before going on to design lingerie in London, Sri Lanka, China, HK and NYC.

Her early career spent creating the most intimate of garments has informed her ongoing artistic exploration into what we choose to conceal and reveal of ourselves.

She will be at Foxy's Deli tonight for her exhibition which begins at 7pm.
