Catherine Roberts

Exhibition: 11 - 25 August 2020
Preview: Tuesday 11 August, 5.30-7pm

In this body of new paintings, Catherine Roberts engages with colour, texture, and contrast to form a series of abstract utopian landscapes that exude a harmonious rhythm.

Working in mixed media on canvas to large-scale, Roberts approaches each piece with an acceptance of serendipity; areas of paint move unhindered and colours are given reign to compose themselves.  Warm blues, yellow greens, pops of red and turquoise, are sensitively applied with consideration to Roberts’ primary inspiration: the natural environment. Forest and bush scenes are translated into surreal hues and melodious compositions.  The result is a sublime scene, sparked into captivating vibrancy through the application of a high-gloss resin, the artist’s final touch.
