The paintings of Catie Radney are the products of intense and intimate conversations spoken in the language of form, space, color, and gesture. An exuberant and impassioned artist, Catie is consumed with the curious struggle of shaping image from the imagination. Her use of tonally consonant and contrasting color combined with vigorous brushwork imbues Catie’s paintings with a complex emotional presence. While her paintings often feature forms or silhouettes, they are intimately about the act, the process of painting, and perhaps how that reflects the process of living. Catie’s mission is to explore the painters’ struggle to breathe life into flat forms, and to reflect the rigors of the human condition through that process. Her paintings are intimate but open, private but shared journeys.
