Catherines's sculptures and paintings are dreamlands of imaginary architectures, sunken cities and lost civilizations.
Who lives in these antique palaces ? Nobody, but one's own dreams. Don't look for any torment in these paintings where you will only find love and poetry and dreams. That is a way of expressing wisdom in the complexity and profusion of details.
At first sight, these baroque buildings appear to be abandoned, but look more closely and you will find, in the winding corridors, sensations which will recall memories of your youth, perhaps forgotten, to reach the beating wings of a ghost bird, probably nesting between stones.
In Catherine's paintings, one finds a similar emotion, with more colors. One becomes a bird soaring over the painting to reach the light.
Light is present, tied to balusters, to stairs, leaking out through openings. Light is present as a comet at the top of the painting. like a luminous, vibrating and mysterious intensity of hope.
Should Catherine model clay, create ceramics or paint, she always instills the poetic inspiration of a baroque, imaginary, luminous and architectural universe.
A shimmerling line, such as a sunary, emphasizes an iridescent patina, linger on it and the whole sculpture glitters and quivers.
Take off and travel in her paintings and you will find what influences so strongly her to create.
