Cathy Read’s vibrant cityscapes are spirited depictions of architecture.
From dramatic close-ups to street views, a closer examination reveals subtlety, precision and detail. Geometric shapes and inherent patterns combine with a freely expressive style. She describes her approach as moving from watercolours to “kickass, ninja watercolours.”
Cassie Reif of Empty Easel writes: “The master of masking, the architect of art, the sultan of splash! Cathy Read of Manchester assumes all these identities and more with her simultaneously precise, yet free-flowing artistic style.”
