Cath Dunn

My paintings are based on natural forms & a sense of place. Natural forms provide me with the curves, patterns & colours for semi-abstraction.

My subject matter is loosely based on natural forms – 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.

My work is inspired by places I know intimately & return to again & again. I am drawn to overlooked areas of land & city. Landscapes are to me, living entities which continue to change. Using patterns, curves and the rhythms of the land, I try to capture the spirit and my feelings for specific places. Colour, either vivid or subtle, and perhaps influenced by living in Africa for many years, remains central to my work. I work in situ using sketches, rough photos & written notes before completion in the studio.
