Catherine Abel (Australian, 1966)



Self-taught, Catherine Abel is a successful Australian artist🎨, renowned internationally for her striking figurative oil paintings. Combining the sleek, stylised geometry of the Art Deco period with the clarity, richness of colour, and depth of light of the Italian Renaissance Masters, her works are powerfully seductive compositions of beauty, elegance, strength and grace.
Abel began painting professionally after moving to Paris in 2000. Influenced greatly by European art and history, she immersed herself in her painting, rapidly building her reputation as a fine art painter. She has exhibited in Australia, France and the USA and is a sought-after portraitist.

An effusion of my love, – Yes.
I loved everything. The girl came, -
I found here face;
Her unconsciousness
Her worker’s hands,
I loved everything about
Her.
