Catherine Dunn

Mixed Media Painting

Studio 19

Catherine’s eclectic and ever evolving style incorporates tactile, almost sculptural multimedia fusions, refined intaglio print making and acrylic painting that shift from strikingly vivid figurative works to purely abstract compositions.

“Art is an expression of my spiritual journey”, says Catherine, “I don’t always know where a work will lead me, and I remain detached from the end result.

It is being immersed in the creative process itself that enables progress to be made.”

Mixed Media Painting Wood Work

Abstract Painter/Wood Worker

I live and create by the sea. I have gathered recycled timber which I craft into artisan furniture. The most beautiful timbers are reserved for tactile sculptural objects, like small stones and surfboards.

It is a privilege to work with swamp kauri, puriri, taraire, rewarewa, totara and pohutukawa of our area. The pieces are designed to give pleasure to the eye, the hand and the mind.

While I enjoy creating works with harmony and movement I also like to challenge the viewer. My paintings reflect our coastal environment and the people around me. I Iook forward to sharing them.

Mixed Media Oil, Acrylic, Pastel Painting Watercolour

With an enthusiasm and love of nature and the environment, I enjoy painting and sketching 'en plein air' in all weathers.  The coast and sea have always been a focal subject for my paintings as I strive to capture atmospheric skies and sometimes tumultuous waters.

In my studio I paint in oils mixed media and water colour layering colours textures and brush marks to create a richness and vitality in my artwork.

Mixed Media

I have studied with Lois McIvor in West Auckland for several years and since moving to Kerikeri I have been under the guidance of Mike Nettman and recently have studied with Theresa Reihana.

I work with acrylic, oils ticks, soft pastels, charcoal,inks and various other mediums.  My work is mostly abstract and through colour and medium I find the form I am searching for.

I am exhibiting for KOAST at ART Upstairs 22 Mill Lane.
