Portfolio – Architecture Paintings

Central Station - ©2019 - Cathy Read - Watercolour and Acrylic - 40 x 50 cm

A unique perspective on the urban landscape which brings architecture to life. Fusing structured masking with expressive paint as the city is reborn.  Cathy Read captures the mood of the city in her art.

The blown ink trails give a sense of energy. Like a life force or electricity escaping the buildings. Cathy’s paintings capture the dreams and ambitions that led to the creation of a city. Iconic structures intended to impress, they cannot help but influence the people who inhabit the spaces.
