CATHERINE PRING: WE ALL HAVE FEET OF CLAY, WE ARE ALL MADE OF STARS

25 MAY - 10 JUNE

I paint from home, in the garden when I can, in the kitchen when I can’t. I like to listen to music when I paint and the music I listen to often has an influence on my art. As with most artists, I paint the human condition but currently my themes are largely inspired by Tarot, Indian art and Greek myths.

I love myths and legends as starting points for my paintings but I work unconsciously so I can veer off at a tangent or change course completely. Making the art is a bit like dreaming, for me. I let things suggest themselves and go with it. Go with the flow. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I call the process runaway muse - or amuse muse. Where it goes, nobody knows. If I don’t love the finished painting, I spin the canvas and start again. The previous painting becomes an under-layer. A hidden or partially hidden part of the painting’s history. Each canvas tells a story - yes - but some canvases have their own story of evolution as well. Their own journey. Some paintings come easily, first time - colour by numbers easy. Others are a chess game and lead me on a merry dance. Sometimes it’s very hard to know when’s painting is finished.

I hope you enjoy a little journey through the mirror with me, led by my unpredictable, runaway amuse, muse.
