Catherine Timotei

My technique is in constant evolution. I learned through drawing that nothing exists without the line, non e sine linea, with my primary source of inspiration being Primitive monochromatic drawings.

At the beginning of my artistic career, I did not know how to use color; it was in Florence, Italy that I was introduced to the painting techniques of the Italian Renaissance masters and I continued my education at Sotheby’s Institute of Art. It was then that I changed my focus from that of European Modernism and fell in love with Abstract Expressionism. This radical shift in my artistic direction, similar to the Cubist painters, rejected the inherited concepts that art should copy nature, and from there, visual theory became the center of my creative practice. 

I create my color fields with oil paint applied to a large canvas using a spatula; forming multiple layers with a squeegee that range in scale from dark to light, different values and tones, all to create a translucency. My subject is color and the beauty of how color creates an emotional response.
