Abel, Catherine (Bridgeman Studio)

Creator details

Abel, Catherine
“Art history is a profound teacher. To achieve mastery one only has to tap into the Greats who have gone before us and surrender to their counsel. Their creative spirits still exist.” Australian artist, Catherine Abel is renowned internationally for her striking figurative and still life paintings. Combining the stylised geometry of the Art Deco period with the clarity of the Italian Renaissance Masters, her works are powerfully seductive compositions of beauty, strength and grace. Self-taught, Abel began painting professionally after moving to Paris in 2000. Influenced greatly by European art and history, she immersed herself in her painting, rapidly building her reputation as a fine art painter. On returning to Australia, Catherine has continued to exhibit and sell both locally and internationally. She has been a finalist in the Archibald Art Prize and Portia Geach Art Award and her works are featured in private collections worldwide.
