Catherine Haggarty

Catherine Haggarty’s paintings explore forgotten elements of art history in their depiction of animals, interiors and human subjects resting in their home. Using an airbrush gun alongside wax crayons and oil sticks, the artist’s work explores the idiosyncratic ways in which drawing and writing relate to painting. Haggarty employs pictorial strategies studied and taught in her seminars—drawing influence from diverse sources, including the Edo period of Japan, Indian painting and indigenous art.
