Catherine Mann


Catherine Mann Statement Imagery is taken from urban landscape, real locations and memories of initial feelings towards the place. Tower blocks, lamp posts, street furniture, inanimate objects with human presence. Articles of inspiration becoming the spring boards for painting and print, probing and trying to make what I see equivalent to what I feel. There is nothing more surreal than reality. Mystical qualities. Exploring the same motif again and again. Presence and absence at the same time. Sense of loneliness. Emptiness, minimal. Volume, space. Technique evolves from journey. Through painting unravelling the mysteries of life. “Through space the universe grasps me and swallows me up like a speck, through thought I grasp it” Blaise Pascal CV EDUCATION 1990 -1992 Camberwell School Of Art London SE5 M.A. Fine Art Printmaking ( Distinction ) 1986 -1989 Norwich School of Art,Norwich B.A.Fine Art Painting ( Upper Second ) 1981 - 1982 London College of Printng. london SE11 Foundation Studies Art & Design AWARDS Impressions 2004 , National Prize Winner 2004 Galway Arts Centre, Galway.
