#paintersinwales #35 #catrinwebster Catrin Webster is a painter who over the past ten years has to explored and extend her painting practice through collaboration and dialogue: To consider potential relationships between image and space; colour and environment; experience and gesture. This has brought Webster into contact with a diversity of media, including sound, installation and video in combination with or as an extension of painting practice.
The relationship between perceived and embodied space has been a central concern throughout Webster’s career. This has led her to create conditions for painting outside of the studio, for example converting a Transit van into a mobile home and studio, with a glass rack on the side acting as mobile easel; cycling 2000 miles around Wales painting and drawing along the route; travelling by public transport over land and sea to Crete.
Webster was born in Cardiff in 1966. She has lived and painted in Rome, Reykjavik, Cardiff, London and Mid Wales and moved to Swansea after her appointment to teach fulltime @sea nseacollegeofart_uwtsd where she is programme director for the BA Fine Art, MA Contemporary Dialogues and Research Degrees.
Webster studied Painting @sladeschool at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and gained a Phd from the University of Wales in 2010. #contemporarypainting #painting #paintwales #paintbritain #walesart #cymru #swansea #beep2020
