Wild Grass is an original painting by Catherine Warren. Catherine likes to work in ‘series’ of paintings – playing with composition, colours and style. One painting helps inform another – taking elements from one and developing (or simplifying) them in another. Wild Grass is one of the more ‘abstracted’ in the series. Focusing on capturing the feeling of walking out on the more remote, higher ground where weather and nature feel a bit wilder, the raw, wild ‘undone’ feel of the painting reflecting the environment.
Catherine takes inspiration from landscapes and nature, from close to her home in Surrey, to the Dorset and Cornwall coast and as far as the Caribbean. She is particularly draw to colour, light and contrast and tries to produce paintings with energy, freedom and movement. She strives to capture something of the essence of a ‘moment in time’, the atmosphere and experience of a certain place. Her paintings encompass the energy of nature alongside that of our own presence in the landscape: the marks we make (both by our presence and through manmade structures), the balance of landscape and humans, and how we sit alongside each other, blend into each other, jar against each other. Catherine works mainly in acrylics, incorporating mixed media such as chalk and oil pastels, acrylic ink and charcoal. Catherine was voted Surrey Artist of the Year 2018.
