CATHERINE TAYLOR PARRY
I work in rural Wales where I live with my husband and daughter where I am surrounded by my atmospheric paintings. My work is a personal response to landscapes. A fleeting moment captured from a passing glimpse of the ice covered mountain, the flash of an orange soaked sky or the silence and stillness of shining sand and mist covered water.
I use colour and texture to create images full of atmosphere and memory. I use acrylics as I love its qualities of manipulation, flexibility and colour.
My access to the countryside is limited due to MS, so my work suggests a distant view or a suggestion of landscape.
I love using colour and the enjoy letting the paint create the image. I am excited by using colours both subdued and strong, but I am happiest using layers of colour and texture to create the images that I want.
I have exhibited my work since leaving Art College , where I achieved a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine Art/Painting and a PGCE in Art and Design.
My creative life is who I am. It sustains me and makes me feel whole.
