Katherine Bull is a practicing artist and part-time lecturer in Visual Art at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in Cape Town. She has exhibited extensively in South Africa and abroad, and prior to her involvement in the University of Cape Town spent ten years lecturing in the Visual Arts department of the University of Stellenbosch. Over the last ten years her work has investigated the impact of the digital on printmaking and the archive, as well as the manner in which visual representation functions (or dysfunctions) in mediating the body’s orientation in time and space. These ideas have been developed and explored in her series data project (2004-present), a sequence of digital drawing performances. And, more recently in projects working in analogue mediums from digital sources.

Treading Soft Ground – A live print performance and collaboration between Katherine Bull & Warren Editions took place on 17 April and 22 May 2014 at Warren Editions Projects. An exhibition followed the performances showcasing the etchings pulled from the 20 plates created during the two performances.

The 20 plates produced in the print performances, resulted in a suite of 10 etchings – in each similar renditions of the same view seen from the live webcam feed is captured. These images were executed with the left and right hand simultaneously; a plate was designated for each hand – and, an additional 12 etchings that are playful cross over combinations of the plates.

The Treading Soft Ground (2014) series, consists of 10 works, of which each has two impressions that show similar renditions of the same view. These images were captured with the left and right hand simultaneously. A plate was designated for each hand.
