Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting visit the studio of painter Catherine Haggarty.

Haggarty comments: "I never start a painting and think I'm going to arrive at a subject, or I'm going to find it through process... I want mistakes to happen and I want process to intervene and surprise me and interrupt me but ... it almost always has some kind of direct relationship with either a memory, or a situation I have been in ... and I wonder how I can remember that and portray that... [The works] are almost always rooted in some kind of personal memory."
