Working in mixed media on canvas to large-scale, Roberts approaches each painting with an acceptance of serendipity; areas of paint move unhindered and colours are given reign to compose themselves.
This practice allows for the full extension of Roberts’ media – flowing acrylics in contrasting and harmonious vivid hues are freely applied to the textured surface by guiding hands, sensitive to the art of letting go within a greater vision and discipline.
Born in Manchester, England, in 1976, Catherine Roberts now lives on Wellington’s south coast where she has painted her semi-abstract landscapes for over 17 Years. Roberts has exhibited throughout New Zealand, and in 2014 was the recipient of the Signature Piece Award at The New Zealand Art Show.
Parnell Gallery has represented Catherine Roberts since 2018.
