Catherine Carter

I love lines. The sinuous lines in my paintings reflect a variety of influences — calligraphic marks, textile weaves and natural forms like tree branches. Each canvas is a distinct journey where varying color schemes suggest different moods or locations —with line the main character.

I apply fluid acrylic paint from squeeze bottles in a motion that combines handwriting with gestural drawing. I then lay paper over the wet surface and roll over it with a brayer to flatten lines, making them wider and softer. Next I layer acrylics over the squeezed marks and paint in the negative spaces between the lines.
