About My Art
My name is Catherine Horvath. I presently live and work in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada, as a professional visual artist.
The art I create is the product of my years spent at art school, practical experimentation and quiet observation. Over time my art has evolved to include many different styles and modes of working, most recently I have included among them abstracted natural landscapes. Although I have worked in many mediums, I always seem to return to painting. Even within the boundries of the painting medium there seems to be endless opportunities to find new expression and ways of working. It always amazes me how putting color to canvas can absorb and convey a lifetime spent looking.
During the creation process I abstract the forms and lines of nature. I then distill and intensify the colors until they become vibrant and rich. Many of my landscape represent compilations of many types of landscapes synthesized into one vision. The land-forms serve as elements in the composition that are created to serve the desired mood and feeling of the final artwork. My paintings have a painterly yet graphic feel about them. Current points of departure have include landscapes, buildings and flowers.
I paint everyday, as a result of that discipline, I have found that with each painting my personal style and visual language becomes more focused and distinct.
I believe that art can give life to a space. The colors, forms and ideas that are presented in a work of art can evoke a profound emotional effect on the viewer. The visual language of art is accessible to everyone.
