Cathy Breslaw, the artistCathy has always been fascinated by the concept of ‘light’ as it is expressed in art but also how it is perceived in our physical environment. Radiance, translucence, and luminosity are all words that come to mind when describing thoughts behind the intent of her work. Just as natural light can warm and enlighten us, Cathy thinks of the various layers of color and transparency experienced in the materials she uses to create her work. It has its roots in childhood and the family fabric business. Spending a multitude of hours around fabrics of all kinds - seeing and feeling colors, textures and patterns presented on an array of fabric types, made an indelible impression which followed her into adulthood and into the art she loves to make.
