Catherine Manchester Exercises in Natural Geometry

In Catherine Manchester’s paintings, the human figure takes center stage in a dreamlike world. The artist has a strong sense of the tension that exists between natural and manmade environments, and creates a synthesis between them in images that project the interior lives of her subjects onto their surroundings.

“I like to find the natural geometry of the body and play with elements that might echo it in the rest of the painting,” she says. Her works will reflect the motion of a figure in the landscape behind it, or let the mood one person exudes cast its aura over the rest of the picture.
Working in oils on canvas, Manchester employs a rich palette that gives her paintings a vivid physicality. Even the most abstract elements in her works have an immediate presence, creating a reality that exists on its own terms. This is an artist who celebrates the role of chance in her work while also communicating a clear intent, noting that her images are inspired by “our desire for knowledge and understanding about existence.”
