Catherine Hyde

Catherine Hyde trained in Fine Art Painting at Central School of Art in London in the early 1980’s and over the past 30 years has gained a reputation for her intellectual and symbolic paintings, charged with atmospheric and iconic images.


She explains: "I have become increasingly obsessed with the tension between meeting points and journeys: land and water – river and sea – twilight and moonrise - night and dawn – high tide and low tide. Drawing on symbolism derived from Greek, Norse, European and Welsh myth, I use the archetypal stag, hare and fish as emblems of wildness, fertility and permanence. Their movements through the paintings act as vehicles that bind the elements together. I am constantly trying to convey the landscape in a state of suspension – the moment between the rise and fall of a wave – in order to reveal the profound connection between man and nature."
