Fine Art Painter
Australian artist, Catherine Abel is renowned internationally for her striking figurative oil paintings. Combining the stylized 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. She has exhibited in Australia, France and the USA and is a sought-after portraitist.
On returning to Australia, Abel has continued to exhibit and sell both locally and internationally. She has been a finalist in the Archibald Portrait Prize, and the Portia Geach Memorial Award and her works are featured in private collections worldwide.
“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.”
