Resident Artist and Co-Director of Spud Lane Gallery
Cat Doyle is a self-taught artist (with amazing mentors) whose practice explores themes of loneliness and belonging in quiet paintings that invite introspection.
In her first solo exhibition, Ode to Poetry, Doyle brought to life the mood and characters of the 1970's British Poetry Revival — a counterculture whose members were brought together by a shared love of modernism and Beat poetry — in her birthplace of Northern England.
Whilst After Dark embodied the permeating loneliness of the Coronavirus pandemic in empty gathering places and the ephemera left behind.
The influence of Doyle’s long-term interest in black and white analogue photography and the abstract representation of figurative forms is apparent in her early work.
More recently, a move away from shades of grey and into colour can be seen, as light returns to the world. This new direction is evident in her third solo exhibition Bibliophilia which explores the literary world of the twentieth century writers who isnpired the artist as the century came to a close.
Her work is held in private collections in Australia and the UK.
