Over and over again I keep returning to the sea. It has always been present. The high tide that brings – questions/issues. The low tide that reveals – the debris. In between there is time once again, a man’s relationship towards the existence, ways of one’s own activity in space.
A man is constantly tied to its past. Though wishing to eliminate it, it will subconsciously have a strong influence and one shall carry it along into the future not yet begun, to the future in which this man sees new expectations, realisations, even if they seem utopian and unrealistic. The high tide, the low tide – the arrival and departure. Understanding the meaning of losing and letting go , depletion and the disappearing in the consciousness, fading of one’s old, past self and finally – comprehending such an experience.
All this represents a key to understanding of my own existence. Water as a symbol of life, streaming revelation that resembles an equation with two solutions. There are desires, there are fears – and there is love. Death, however, is relative as one cannot pass away in its own future, it has not been verified and it only exists in the world we get to perceive later.  All these questions affect me. They pass through me, they interest me. Who is my father? Who is my teacher? I know only that there is one. He helps me see things I miss and shatters the darkness of my ignorance. It is rather hard to achieve realisation having no teacher to guide you.

After being accepted to the one of the most important open submission exhibitions in Northern Europe, Forårsudstillingen/Spring Exhibition 2011 in Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen, Denmark), where my painting titled September was chosen by The Jury that review over 3000 submitted works, I continue my work with new, different, very femminile energy. Northern lights left me a dream. Beauty, poetics and seduction.

I comprehensively interweave all of my artistic passions and knowledge into the planning and execution of my visual art projects. Various creative techniques democratically take part in my visual art expression. My work is characterized by a high-level of poeticism and aesthetisation.

In my works I strive for purity, light and affection. (july 2011)

    Hi Catherina. I think every artist must go through different stages of self discovery in order to grow. As life inspires us, we gain the desire to honestly express ourselves through our artworks, to spread our emotions to the viewers, and to inspire them to express themselves in their own ways. I think you have always done that with your artworks. You let people know who you are through your works and made them feel. That is the talent that few people possess. Thanks for producing beautiful artworks for the world. Bruce
