Catherine T. Nelson
Catherine T. Nelson is a multimedia artist living and working in New Orleans, Louisiana. She graduated from Duke University with a BA in Visual Arts & Art History and a Post-Baccalaureate from Maryland Institute College of Art. Catherine came to our Etching Studio to resolve two conflicting bodies of work, and left with the beginnings of something new entirely. While her past monotypes aimed to clearly express her frustration with the politics of gender in the face of Louisiana debutante culture, Catherine’s new project takes a more subtle and gentle approach to the complex roles of women, mediated by memory and family.
