About

After years of living in Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, and most recently Los Angeles, Catherine has returned to her home away from home, where she continues to work as a full-time artist. Her particular mixed media collage technique is derived from skills developed over the last twenty years, involving a variety of media, intuition, and whimsy. Her inspiration is directly related to the visual complexity and imperfect beauty of the urban landscape. From old signage and graffiti to architectural forms and repetition in nature, these city elements are extracted as “visual souvenirs” and work their way into the art via color, shape and pattern.

“I collect the visual elements and work them into my art through photography, drawing, painting, screen-printing, and finally collage. Evolution is the center point of my process. I achieve this through intuitive and recurrent construction, deconstruction, and recombination of materials and imagery.”

Catherine Dudley’s work has been collected both publicly and privately throughout the country. She is represented at the Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
