Catherine S. Adamson
Welcome to the gallery of artworks created by Vancouver artist Catherine S. Adamson. Catherine's paintings are made with acrylic and latex paint on stretched canvases and finished with a UV-protectant varnish. Using her "free-flow" painting method of allowing paint to flow off a wooden stick and down onto a prone canvas, she layers the colours and lines to create a unique movement and depth on each canvas. Paintings can be purchased directly from the venues, or by contacting the artist via email. Enjoy!

I have always sketched and painted throughout my life, but only recently these past twelve years have I experimented with what I call "Free-Flow" painting. By giving up having complete control, as we do with a paintbrush, I allow the paint to flow freely from the stick held over a prone canvas and watch the magic happen. I am influenced by the chaos and beauty of nature. Certainly Jackson Pollock's style of dripping and pouring paint from above also influenced my method. I have moved beyond abstract and take time for images to emerge from the chaos I create. There is great joy in letting go of control and celebrating the results.
