2018 Press release:
atmospherics – luminous new works by Catherine Beale ASWA:
Award-winning Bath-based painter Catherine Beale’s solo exhibition bursts with colour and luminosity. It is a celebration of the power of modern paints and a year of dramatic weather over our City – from towering shadows of thunder storms to the long, hot summer and holiday jets tracking vapour trails across clear skies.
Also featuring are her latest portraits fresh from the Society of Women Artists exhibition at London’s Mall Galleries where she is an Associate member. Catherine is grateful to kind clients who have loaned back a few of her commissioned portraits of loved ones just for the show.
Catherine says “ I really want to convey the excitement of “fast and loose” watercolours. New paints are like ink in their intensity and can be applied onto all sorts of surfaces. By dropping running paints into water, I mingle then together naturally, with surprising results. I now use intense paints from the US which contain minerals such as Hematite and Amethyst. They channel like rivers across the surface.”
