Main Image.

Australian-based artist Catherine Coster is exhibiting in May and June at the Mctamney Gallery, Geraldine.  An expressionist painter on a number of levels, her paintings are characterised by their contrasting subjects of light against darkness and the gestures and marks of her brush.  Yet, such a description is by necessity qualified by the affirmation nature of her work, her subjects emerging into light and enlightenment.  She describes her paintings as coming from an intuitive place.  ‘I apply paint in a quick, expressive manner, allowing the paint to flow where it will and inform the picture. The painting takes on a life of its own as I reflect upon and explore the shapes that emerge as a work progresses. The finished work often deviates from my initial musings and I am often surprised at the final image that has been born, like it was just waiting for the right time to emerge.’
