About

Bridget Catchpole is a queer identified visual artist with a practice in contemporary art jewellery and sculpture. She lives on the unceded territory of the K'ómoks First Nation of Hornby Island, BC. For more than 10 years, her works are a material exploration of plastic's worth and waste. She uses post-consumer plastics and found marine debris to explore the personal and cultural biases of a perceived worthless material and the disastrous impacts this perception has impacted on the planet's biosphere. These self-harvested materials become a departure point for broader topics of repair not replace, as well as a partiality involving worth and waste, blurring notions of what is precious, valuable and lasting. She received her jewellery training at the Vancouver Jewellery Art and Design Program and has a BFA in Studio Art at Concordia University, Montreal. Catchpole has been the recipient of project/research grants from the Canada Council for the Arts as well as the British Columbia Arts Council and has been featured in solo and group exhibitions, nationally and internationally.
