Artist Catherine Eaton Skinner illuminates the balance of opposites and numerical systems – ranging from simple tantric forms to complex grids, reflecting mankind’s attempts to connect to place/each other.
Skinner’s creativity stems from growing up in the Pacific Northwest, her Stanford biology degree and Bay Area Figurative painters Nathan Oliveira and Frank Lobdell’s painting instruction.
Between Seattle and Santa Fe studios, she concentrates on painting, encaustic, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Various art anthologies contain her work. 100+ publications have highlighted Skinner’s art, including LandEscape Art Review (London), Artists on Art, Magazine 43 (Berlin, Hong Kong, Manila) and the Radius Book publication of her monograph 108.
Skinner has had 39 solo domestic and international exhibitions. Marin MOCA, the Royal Academy of Art, Yellowstone Art Museum and the Awagami Japanese Handmade Paper Museum have shown her work. Corporate and public collections include: the Embassy of the United States, Papau New Guinea; Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, Washington; and the University of Washington’s Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, Washington.
