TOAF takeover

#TOAFtakeover: Catherine Hiller

Welcome to #TOAFtakeover, an Instagram series that gives you an insight into the work and life of our artists.

Good morning! My name is Catherine Hiller and I will be taking over TOAF’s Instagram today, all day! I am a French Abstract Expressionist artist originally from Paris and now based in Melbourne. I will be sharing some of my works and practice throughout the day.’

”Moonlight’ – Oil on Linen – 93x123cm
My works are raw and visceral, the product of instinct rather than intellect. I am very sensitive to my surroundings – colours, sounds, people and most of all music.’

”Amour’ – oil on linen – 143x143cm
One of the things I paint most about is love – because…What else?!’

‘I participated in The Other Art Fair in Sydney last October – what a fantastic experience, meeting lots of amazing artists and an incredible amount of new collectors – can’t wait to do it all over again in Melbourne in May!’

‘Love is in the air’ – Oil on Linen – 123x123cm
Every cue, whether visual, aural or emotional, has a colour to me and I try translating it all onto canvas without the distraction of a thought process.’

‘My new studio in St Kilda, Melbourne.
It used to be old stables and has amazing natural light – it is also near the beach which is rather enjoyable after a day’s hard work!’

”La vie est belle’ – Oil on Linen – 123x123cm
All my works are oil on linen. I have been working with oils for over 30 years and I just love the richness of the paint, its blending capacity and how it just glides on the linen.’

”L’envie’ – Oil on Linen -123x123cm
That’s it for me today! It has been a pleasure sharing my work with you and if you are in Melbourne in May, I hope to see you at The Other Art Fair! –¬†Au Revoir.’
