artBEAT: The Leaping Hare with Catherine Hyde
Sun June 10, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm BST
Watch award-winning painter and illustrator Catherine Hyde at work.
Always in pursuit of new techniques, this fascinating demonstration focuses on the use of paint on clay board. She will be unpacking the process with particular reference to the interpretation of a text, on this occasion a poem by Ted Hughes, which she will read before beginning to work.
CATHERINE HYDE is a Cornish artist and award winning Illustrator. She trained in Fine Art Painting at Central School of Art in London and has shown her atmospheric and symbolic paintings successfully in galleries for over thirty years. She is represented in Cornwall by The Lighthouse Gallery, Penzance and in London by Foss Fine Art, Battersea. Alongside her paintings and illustrations she runs her own greeting cards business with over sixty reproductions of her work and creates fine quality giclee prints which she sells in the UK and America.
“She is, if you will, a visual poet weaving images, symbols and archetypes into paintings that resonate in the subconscious and linger there like half remembered dreams or the dark fairy stories with which she has such affiliation” Pip Palmer, Galleries Magazine
