My background in art education empha- sizes a strong foundation of classical art training, greatly influencing my artistic focus and direction. My intent is to capture, on paper or canvas, mysterious and thought provoking scenes. Nature's moods and soft edges inspires me to draw and paint abstracts, landscapes or figure studies. My art is in private collections nationwide; I've exhibited in galleries and juried shows in S. California, NW Arkansas and S. Oregon.
'At the heart of my work is a fascination with artifacts, culture and color. I seek objects that transcend time and culture and work to translate their truths into a modern expression. Ideas come to me often like Muses in the night. I work with these inspirations through a variety of mixed media - paint, pastels, clay and sculptural surface treatments. When I discover an object or artifact, I see a vision for the whole painting. It is then I begin to unfold its story. Itís as if working with the artifacts causes a merging with peoples of a different time and space, connecting me to them through their objects. My use of color of is directly related to time. Time creates art and is one of the greatest artists. It takes me as its partner to uncover the beauty in the mundane and the holy.' Click to visit Cathy Dorris Studios website.
