About Cathy Boyd:
Cathy Boyd’s work explores the often-overlooked little worlds around us. By reducing the world, she actually expands it—she relishes the cascading setting sun through the branches of a lonesome tree or the interminable ripples of a springtime streambed. Boyd’s works are at once beautiful and contemplative, imploring us to abscond from our modern world for a moment and delight in the simple satisfactions of nature. Working in either pastels or oils, her style ranges from representational precision to painterly abstraction. The colors that she culls from natural settings are often nearly Fauvist without being garish, while on other occasions she displays her talent for a more natural palette. Her work, beyond its technical prowess, possesses a philosophical flair, an expression of peace and unity to all things.
