Cathie follows inspirations that revolve around the human and the urban world. She approaches them with paint and digi-graphic (digital inkjet) techniques. Her first series was rich in materials: pigment, acrylic binders, ash, sand, gauze, paper... She depicted silhouettes and then faceless portraits.
In 2009 she began exploring new pictorial techniques: photography, graphic design and illustration. She learned to harmonize all these effects to create works based on digital compositions. In her new creations with "retro" accents, Cathie seeks to transcribe "vintage" aesthetics of the recent past. Femininity and childhood are represented in a sweet, nostalgic and poetic universe.
Her work begins with a long collection of images, paper, fabric, old and personal photos. The pieces are scanned, and then cut up and assembled using computer tools. The subjects are often associated with old fabric patterns. The resulting composition is then printed on canvas to be reworked with coloured inks and into collages of scraps of paper or posters. An epoxy resin covers the work and gives a valuable aspect to each canvas. The artist slips in a word or phrase to accompany her work.
Cathie also expresses her passion as part of the artistic duo ET CAETERA, while continuing her own personal work.
