Cathy Carey

Cathy Carey says:  “I am best described as a Contemporary Expressive Colorist, whose favorite part about painting is using color to create emotional meaning and visual depth. In choosing what to paint or how to paint it, I want my pictures to be more than the reality of description, and I strive to fill viewers with a sense of joy. Inspired by Matisse, my goal is to paint what it feels like, not what it looks like. I want to show how the movement and interaction of colors and shapes feels like the rhythm and pulse of music and dancers.  Art is a communication.  I like to tell stories with my paintings to capture the imagination of the viewer.  My continuing goal is to dig deeper into my psyche and soul to uncover universal truths about what it means to be human. The underlying story I want to tell is that all matter vibrates with the energy of consciousness, and we are all connected through beauty and love. I feel it is my mission in life to bring joy to as many people as I can, through my art.”
