Rue 48 Gallery—Catherine Palmer



While Catherine has been at the business of making art for as long as she can remember, her work as a student began in earnest in 1987 when she was awarded a scholarship to the Split Rock Art program. Since then, her study has led her from the precepts of life and figurative drawing to the freedom she has found in theory and an abstract vision. In other words, you need to know the rules to break them and in the process of doing so, catharsis is found. Her starting place is color; color leads her through space to composition. The subject matter can be identified as a conversation with the world she lives in, influenced by feminism, personal circumstance and the on-going attempt to create a pure art object, one that exists solely for the experience of the beholder. hosting information . Catherine currently lives in Minneapolis.
