My work is a response to powerful, emotional moments in time – human snapshots. Through a very energetic and sensual strokes, I express my love of paint and colour, celebrating people and emotions.
My works are raw and visceral, the product of instinct rather than intellect. I am very sensitive to my surroundings – colours, sounds, people and most of all music; every cue, whether visual, aural or emotional, has a colour to me and I try translating it all onto canvas without the distraction of a thought process.
I also particularly enjoy the process, the physicality of painting and hopefully it transpires in the end result.
French born, I studied art in Paris before embarking on a successful career in advertising in the UK. After 11 years in the UK, I moved to Australia in 2004 and have been living in Melbourne since. I have had solo and group shows in France, England and Australia and my work is represented in private collections internationally. ~ Catherine Hiller
