PERSONAL JOURNEYS OF MEMORY

To know where you’re going, you’ve got to know where you’ve been. “I am most inspired by the past; by who and what I am most inspired by the past; by who and what came before me. I am interested in history and the traces it leaves on the visual environment.came before me. Although I am not a historian, I am interested in history and the traces it leaves on the visual environment.  Whether in my immediate surroundings or in distant parts of the world, I am constantly fascinated by the ways things used to be.”

Catherine’s work is inspired by spiritual and architectural sites around the globe as well as in her hometown of Buffalo, NY.  “With my 35 mm camera, I have documented buildings and their facades.  I have studied the surface textures, the architectural elements, the rusting and faded features which capture the spirit of who we have been as a culture.   Whether it is a spiritual shrine that has existed for thousands of years, a building from the early 1900s or a decaying car in a junkyard, my images all embody the soul of who we are.” 

Catherine is excited about the Studio E approach to art collecting. “As someone who has been collecting art for many, many years, I feel an intense personal connection to the artists whose work I live with and love every day. As a part of Studio E, I’m looking forward to being on the other side of that special relationship.”
