Catherine Gordon grew up in Perth, Western Australia and in 1991 received a Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) at Curtin University.
Catherine draws inspiration from her life’s experiences. Her diversity in subjects reflect the places she has lived, worked and travelled and range from abstract internal fields to the awe inspiring drama of the Great Southern. Catherine’s search for a way to express herself is felt in her body of drawings and paintings and by her joyful appreciation of the Western Australian landscape, its spirituality and future.
Since 1993 Catherine has exhibited in many solo and selected group exhibitions. Catherine's work is held in many corporate and private settings and her art maps and drawings feature in numerous book titles.
Catherine continues her commissions and private work, reflecting her desire to continue to develop her art.
This book presents Catherine's art in its many forms and phases, including her narrative studies, her landscapes from the South-West of Western Australia, portraits of the Greek Islands, intricate and expressive art maps and drawings, and her brilliant seascapes.
It's a lovely thing to contemplate such a collection of paintings and drawings, and the stories that go with them.
