' I am truly part of the Blue peter generation, I just love making and decorating, whatever the medium or subject. My father the late David Lawes, was a Scenic Artist working for theater companies such as the Royal Opera House & ENO and this wet my appetite for working with many mediums, production design & all things theatrical. My interest in Tech-effect costume also blossomed from a young age when he worked with the amazing costume designer Eiko Ishioka. My mother was a brilliant potter, and that inspired me to work with clay, to sculpt & to model make. I went on to study at Chelsea College of Art & Design in 1994 where I honed my skills in painting, sculpting, design & illustration. ' - Natasha Lawes
' Much has already been written on the relationship between death and photography, on reality and fiction, on the blurring of genres-all fundamental themes in the discussion around contemporary photographers and the work of Katerina Jebb. Using a variety of techniques- scanners, photocopy machines and conventional cameras- Jebb almost denatures life, capturing the familiar and re-presenting it to us as something alien and otherwordly. As with the daguerreotype, Jebb's images feel like a dim and fading memory which momentarily saves the sitter from inexorable destruction in the form of the photographic trace.
