Description

“Wave Breaking” by Catherine Kennedy

Unframed oil on canvas measuring:  70 x 100 cm or 27.5 x 39.5 inches. Signed and dated. Comes with a certificate of authenticity.

“Wave Breaking” is inspired by the coastline of south Devon.  It shows a large wave cresting,  lit by the sun turning the waves a vivid turquoise. The time of day is key here. It is very late afternoon, the light is fading fast. The highlights become a mixture of turquoise and blues contrasting with the deep blue of the sea. I like to work in oils because of their versatility. You can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. It is so robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too. This is another in my series of wave paintings which I started 5 years ago and numbering 50.

There are many reasons I like to work in oils. Firstly, because of their versatility. Secondly, I can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. Finally, it is such robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too.

Graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 from the University of Plymouth, I have exhibited my paintings throughout Devon and gained an award at the Exeter Short Film festival. I have exhibited my films and photographs at the South Bank Centre, London and in Italy.

Being a Teignmouth based artist I am a member of the Devon Artist Network and have recently been given the status of Art Ambassador for the Torbay UNESCO geopark.
