“Peri Blues”, 2021, 23x33x1.5″, oil on canvas

WAAC Artist Catharine Somerville will be part of a group exhibition in Gallery 1313’s Winter Emerging Artist Exhibition, held online between January 5th – January 22nd, 2022.

Gallery 1313 has always supported emerging artists during its 25 years and will continue to do so into the future. This current exhibition challenges the notion of what an emerging artist actually is, exploring that question in relation to age, access to resources and exhibition history, using 30+ artists including our own Catherine Somerville as their canvas.

A brief history of the artist in question, Catharine Somerville was born in Toronto and works in both the UK & Canada. Her work is a visual experience, concerned with the observed world in arrays of light and colour.

“I paint colour. I consider the ‘shades of grey’ and vibrancy of the moment in both my landscapes and “A La Prima” flower paintings. A kaleidoscopic relationship with colour is my dream and I try to connect to the viewer through an emotional stream that colour evokes similar to the feeling music might create by exploring our human sense.”
