Annie Cattrell’s practice as a fine artist is often informed by working with specialists in neuroscience, meteorology, engineering, psychiatry and the history of science.
Catrell's cross-disciplinary approach has enabled her to learn about cutting edge research and in depth information in these fields. She is particularly interested in the parallels and connections that can be drawn within these approaches in both art and science.
She has recently undertaken a number of commissions including at the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail, the award winning Bio-chemistry Department at Oxford University designed by Hawkins Brown and for the new Riverside Development at Lewisham Hospital. Recently she has completed a major commission for Oxford Brookes University called Resounding and is Lead Artist at the Cambridge University’s New Museum Site.
Cattrell was born in Glasgow and studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art, University of Ulster and at the Royal College of Art. She has been a tutor at the Royal College of Art since 2000 and has lectured in many art colleges in the UK. Recent solo exhibitions include Fathom, Pier Art Centre, (Orkney), Anne Faggionato Gallery (London), The Faraday Museum at the Royal Institution (London) and Inverness Museum and Art Gallery.
