Seaweeds are flowerless plants that live in the ocean, transforming impurities into materials essential to life. Like the natural historian I do fieldwork on location gaining knowledge through patient observation of what nature tosses out. Styled bouquets are arranged from sea plants gathered at low tide, photographed on the beach.

Catherine Beaudette is a Canadian artist, curator and professor at OCAD University. She is the founder of Loop Gallery, Toronto and 2 Rooms Contemporary Art Projects, Duntara, Newfoundland. Born in Montréal, Beaudette currently divides her time between Toronto and Bonavista Bay. Her practice stems from both places, where she collects objects, artifacts and specimens to form the basis of her drawings, paintings and installations. Combining elements from the natural world with evidence of human activity, Beaudette’s collections present alternative taxonomies with which to consider the world around us. Recent curatorial projects include Bonavista Biennale 2017, a Canada 150 Project taking place in Newfoundland. Beaudette has attended art residencies in Spain, Serbia/Montenegro, Havana, Dawson City, Banff, and Fogo Island. She received her MFA from the NSCAD in 1998. Beaudette won the RBC Canadian Painting Prize in 2000, and twice has been awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant.
