21st April – 3rd May 2015 // Cuba Street, Wellington, New Zealand
This series of work concerns itself with the breakdown of color and form of natural subjects and the way they can resemble microscopic human cells. The works themselves were presented in their raw form, painted on found wood. Catherine’s interests in Expressionism and Abstract Art are evidenced in this series as the painting are reminiscent of Kandinsky’s Circles. These works are also a tribute to Chuck Close’s large scale works which are made up of small squares. Much like Close’s work, these paintings are a small detail of a bigger picture.
