Catherine Richardson

At the heart of Catherine Richardson’s work lies a fascination for the internal life of her subjects. Pivotal themes recur; people caught in thought, figures enveloped in water and the private internal landscape exposed. The places depicted are imbued with memory. They are almost defined by the absence of physical presence.

Catherine’s development as an artist has been consolidated by a formal training in the history of art. She studied Fine Art as a combined degree, painting at Edinburgh College of Art with history of art at Edinburgh University. Her style remains freely layered, drawing upon but deliberately not restricted by the mores of traditional painting.
