Cath Dunn

Using patterns, curves and the rhythms of the land, I try to capture the spirit and my feelings for specific places.

My subject matter is based on natural forms and a sense of place – rocks, trees, the lie of the land – although my primary interest lies in pattern, abstraction and stylization. Currently I would describe my work as semi-abstract but with a long-term aim of greater abstraction.

Although semi-abstract, my work is connected, with a sense of place – places that I visit frequently and have an emotional attachment to. I am particularly attracted to the edges of things whether literally as in the gritstone edges, the urban fringe or more obscurely the edges of life – elements that may be overlooked.

Much of my work is watercolour or mixed media but I am now also painting more & more in oil and acrylic.
Influences for my work are many but especially Barbara Rae, Elizabeth Blackadder and my contemporaries in and around Sheffield.
