In her third Solo Exhibition at Foss Fine Art, Catherine Hyde elevated her favoured subject matter: stags, owl and hares, to new heights in a series of large scale paintings.
Catherine Hyde’s sense of poetry and other worldliness is ever present. She expertly captured glimpses of animals as they move gracefully through the landscape, caught in the moment. Her particular focus in this series had been to marry this ethereal quality with a strong sense of the physicality of the animal she was portraying. Overall Catherine Hyde created a world that is at once magical and yet deeply tied to the earthly world with the suggestion of light rising.
