The exhibition includes paintings and limited edition prints inspired by light, water and Dorset’s unique and beautiful Jurassic coastline.
A well-known artist, Cathy specialises in large seascapes with an unmistakable style rich in luminosity and colour. Her evocative paintings have often been described as looking ‘wet’ like the sea itself.
Brought up in the Isle of Purbeck and its thriving art community, Cathy is drawn to the coast and fringes of land. The Jurassic coastline with its stunning natural beauty, has been the theme of her work for many years both on land and from the sea. Her fascination with the sea is fuelled by its changing moods and patterns that are formed by the sky’s reflection and tidal states. Cathy’s paintings depict a unique sense of texture, concentrating on the effects of light and colour on water.
“We’re very excited for Cathy to be exhibiting here in our gallery. It really is the perfect setting for her paintings, with it’s spectacular sea views,” said Durlston Country Park’s Shannon Dugdale.
Cathy’s paintings have regularly been selected to be shown with Britain’s leading watercolour artists in London at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and the Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibitions.
The exhibition runs until 31 August and is open from 10.30am and 5pm.
