Catherine Skinner Gallery
About the Artist
Artist Catherine Eaton Skinner’s work is centered on the balance of opposites, as well as numerical systems, patterning and repetition used to construct order to our world. Skinner moves from the simplicity of tantric forms to the complexities of grids. She reflects, “We live in a world where it may be difficult to feel a part of the whole, but we continue trying to find ways to connect to place and to each other.” Her various series of works give expression to her journeys through many cultures over the years. Her creative sensibilities stem from growing up in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, her BA in Biology from Stanford University and her painting instruction from Bay Area Figurative painters Nathan Oliveira and Frank Lobdell. She divides her time between Seattle and Santa Fe, a multidisciplinary artist working in painting, encaustic, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Skinner’s monograph 108 (Radius Books) showcases her investigation of the symbolic number. Various visual art anthologies contain her work. 100+ publications have highlighted her artwork, including LandEscape Art Review (London), Artists on Art, Magazine 43 (Berlin, Hong Kong, Manila), Saatchi Art, Blink Art, Contempo Annual, The Woven Tale Press, Apero and art ltd. Skinner has had 39 solo domestic and international exhibitions and her work has been in numerous group exhibitions in museum and galleries. Public collections include, among others, the Embassy of the United States, Tokyo; Boeing Corporation, Seattle; University of Washington, Seattle; and the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma!
