Catherine Day


Cate Day's paintings and ceramic forms are expressionist in style.The challenge of manipulating oil paint to capture her here and now is a never-ending source of satisfaction. Clay holds a similar attraction for Cate. She enjoys its responsiveness as she manipulates it and embellishes its surface to capture her response to the clay and natural forms around her. Cate uses pinch, slab and coil techniques to build because of the way they produce an organic, imperfect shape. In her painting and ceramics, finger marks and brush marks are not completely tidied away. Cate wants the viewer to know the piece was made by hand.
