Cathy creates stunning scenes of contemporary architecture.
“City landscapes are constantly changing and contemporary buildings hold a particular fascination.
They are alive with the necessity and dreams that bring them into creation. I depict the life within which ultimately comes from the people living and working within. I represent this vitality through the movement of the paint
Contrasts play a significant part in my work. The order and chaos of a dream world defined by physical actuality, light and dark or clarity versus obscurity.
Change and experimentation stimulate this creative process, to be afraid of change is to be afraid of life. I’m always embracing and incorporating new ideas, as my work evolves. The Art created is informed by the past but looks to the future by the fusion of contemporary and traditional architecture. Reflecting the changing spaces in the world around us.
Using mixed media I’m able to exploit the different characteristics of the individual materials. In preserving the negative space I’m able to focus on dynamic and expressive application of media. The masked area providing structure and contrast to the unstructured, painted areas.”
