Catherine's art explores the relationship between colour, movement and abstraction through expressive mark making and raw brushwork, and the exhibition uses these techniques to highlight the objectification of women through the extremes of desire and power.'
Catherine said of the exhibition's objectives: "I began to explore these themes using figures of women depicted in their desirability, questioning the power of the male gaze and female status.
"These developed to contrast with provocative elements to mirror the effect an image can have on a viewer, in particularly when created in the form of a painting and when displaying private scenes in the public eye.
"Initially growing from an idea of capturing emotions in abstract artwork to show passion, I pushed the notion to extreme emotion represented in controversial forms."
Through her art Catherine incorporates multiple mediums ranging from oil on canvas, acrylic and spray paint to create a fluid movement and intense impressions.
Her work highlights the emotions associated with passion and romance using free flowing paint contrasted with harsh disruptions.
Catherine added: "I hope that people will respond to my work in a positive way, be that the work creates a new dialogue or that the paintings represent a popular discussion point with a new angle.
"Artwork that instils a common connection or desire to contemplate a fresh perspective inspires me, which I hope this show captures."
