Catherine's INTERIORS paintings of furniture often feature empty rooms, resulting in a single deeply considered image. These works are roughly broken down into three parts, the object, the wall and the floor. The empty rooms are concerned not only with the geometry of the space but also the air contained within. The painted surfaces are layered with colour, creating a sensation of light and carefully balanced tones. Each visual element, air, object, wall and floor, takes on an equal relationship and importance, focusing on one single image representing time, space and place.
