Geometric abstraction, Catalyst No 4

Geometric abstraction, Catalyst No 4

Known for her expanding dimension and exuberant colourful paintings, French Corsican artist Catherine Timotei’s work draws inspiration from a diverse array of influences – from Renaissance masters to the 20th Century abstract Expressionism movement.

Her theory of pure colour echoes the powerful impressions left by Hans Hoffmann. Making a painting is almost a physical struggle and reflects the artist’s constant search to give volume presence, between reality and immateriality and between two- dimensional extension and three- dimensional depth. With the moral impulse of the American expressionist heroes strongly entangled she bridges the link between European and American expressionism to develop her own expressive potential.

Her artwork is full of allusions and associations that are not easily deciphered, leaving room for it to take on a diaphanous form.

Catherine Timotei settled in South Africa several years ago and lives in Cape Town.
