Bridget Catchpole

Bridget Catchpole is a visual artist with a practice in contemporary jewelry and sculpture. Her work is a material exploration of plastic’s worth and waste, a reflection of anthropogenic climate change, and a representation of recovery and transformation. Since 2004, she has altered discarded post-consumer and marine plastics in her work to produce one-of-a-kind pieces and, more recently, to create sculptural “Wall Jewellery” forms. Her studio is located on the K’omoks unceded traditional territory of Hornby Island, British Columbia.

Bridget Catchpole is recipient of multiple grants from Canada Council for the Arts and BC Arts Council. Over the years, she participated in numerous exhibitions. Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h hosted her first solo exhibition Curios in 2007. From 2015 to 2019, her work was presented by the gallery at SOFA, Sculptural Objects Functional Art and Design Fair in Chicago. Since 2021, one of her pieces is part of in the permanent collection of the Montreal Fine Arts Museum.

The gallery will host her exhibition Still the ocean sounds the same from March 26 to April 22, 2022.
