Patty Cateura. (Trendsetters: emerging artists).
Patty Cateura's paintings are based in the American color field tradition of the 1960s combined with contemporary abstract narrative elements. Urban life contrasted with nature is an essential part of her artwork.
"I paint abstract narratives of contemporary urban life within the larger world of nature and color," she explained. "Using both abstraction and realism, man-made objects are playfully juxtaposed to nature and to the infinite expanse of monochromatic space. In my paintings, the opposing realities of nature and contemporary urban life coexist enigmatically within a pure color universe."
Cateura attended Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. and received her M.F.A. from the Maryland Institute in Baltimore. Her most recent exhibit was at the Aljira Gallery in Newark, NJ. Cateura's work has also been shown in galleries throughout New York, where she currently resides. For information, call (212) 274-8674 or visit www.pattycateura.com.
