About Catherine Outwin - Artist
Auckland-based artist Catherine Outwin has beautiful, contemporary paintings for sale from her studio/gallery in Takapuna, and also from her website.
Her work is inspired by seductive materials such as resin, acrylics and mixed media and are created after meditating on subjects such as light and landscape.
By a process of addition and manipulation Catherine explores the relationship between surface and depth, creating a dynamic interplay between elements.
The paintings you see are the final scene of a moving picture whose history is encoded in layers of resin.
"My latest body of work has been inspired by my work as a behavioural therapist and the emotions that are brought on by our nervous systems and associated with our thoughts, feelings, behavioural responses and the pleasure or pain these emotions evoke. Emotions are complex and a wonderful challenge to express through my art. Sometimes we are consciously aware of our emotions and other times the experiences that arouse the emotion are trapped in our subconscious. As an artist, I constantly go "into the zone" whilst creating, this can produce organically created and expressive work, derived from my subconscious mind. "
