Artist: Catriona HALL

Catriona Hall was born in Hertfordshire in 1960. She studied History of Art at Warwick University. After University Catriona spent a career in the publishing world.

Catriona Hall creates paintings with an enduring quality and appeal. There are many influences on her work including periods spent living in America and Egypt and study of medieval art. Early medieval Italian altarpieces, Edward Bawden, John and Paul Nash, Egyptian hieroglyphics and the Elgin marbles have also influenced her work.

Catriona Hall is very much known for her paintings of animals and birds. Her animal paintings are highly stylised, often rather portly, whiskerless and always left-facing, Her subjects are immortalised with quirky simplicity and almost folk style of art. Although perhaps a little short on the leg front, often Catriona attends carefully to feather and fur colour and markings so that the creatures are recognisable, albeit fatter than their real counterparts. Sometimes Catriona combines subjects. For example: when curlews sit on cows or pewits prance with horses, but her animals and birds are always recognisable. Proportions are often skewed when searching for the perfect composition and balance and this enhances the primitive nature, though sometimes Catriona feels it necessary to curb the realism of a flower or an object copied straight from nature and rendered it in a more stylised form.

Catriona Hall paints using acrylic on board. She sucessfully pares down the shape and form of her compositions creating a primitive purity in her paintings. The stance and colour are vital in Catriona's compositions and she always works first on the animal or bird, working up the drawing in pencil on gesso board until the shape is ready for paint. Once the main subject is complete, Catriona adds the landscape with special attention given to the balance of colours so that the main subject is in high relief with a low eye level.

In producing her paintings Catriona sticks to an earthy palette which lends an old fashioned air. She builds the paint up in semi-opaque layers for full opacity in planes of colour with little shading.

In addition to Red Rag Modern Art Gallery Catriona Hall's art work has been exhibited at other leading British Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Catriona Hall artist studio and like all Red Rag Modern British art it can be shipped worldwide.
