Three Figures with Strings 1995

Camille Nao Katsuragi (1973–2003)

Coventry University

Painter of Japanese nationality, working in oil and mixed media on canvas, who gained an honours degree in fine art from Coventry University, 1993–6; her master’s in painting, Slade School of Fine Art, 1996–8; and who attended London School of printing, professional photography practice, 1988. Eschewing the Western figurative narrative tradition, Katsuragi aspired to paint figures, faithful reproductions of what she envisaged rather than what was there, around which viewers must create their own story. Exhibitions included Donkey, Arcadian Centre, Birmingham, 1998; Global II, Addison Wesley Longman, Harlow, 1998–9; and Fin de Siècle, Riverside Studios, Standing on the Date Line, Sella Gallery, and Conversation Pieces, Hammerson plc, all 1999.
