In May 2023, Katharine Geddes travelled to Ypres, Belgium to take part in a
documentary called Ways We Remember War. She painted on land once ravaged by the First World War - now restored countryside. Geddes followed the pathways forged by Canadian war artist Mary Riter Hamilton, who painted the devastation in 1919. “Now when I paint on site I think about the power of place,” she says. “I imagine both past and future, building a continuum of moments in time.”
