About Catherine Rutgers and CatRutgers4Art © 2019

The art on this site begins with scans (mostly) or photographs (sometimes) of collages, paintings, and ephemeral constructions created from organic and human-made objects. These raw materials are transformed in many layers of change. I look at the work in every way I can think of (print, slideshow, web page) and then adjust colors, contrast, texture, and dimensions until the ideal image emerges.

I believe in magic moments. Am not afraid to be sentimental, and adore a tweaked cliché. Two of my favorite pastimes are watching paint dry and observing green tendrils unfold.

CatRutgers4Art is a continuous experiment, a space to create and reflect. Here, I record ideas over time and build an accessible archive of inspiration. A special feature is the Guest Spot, which highlights work by other artists who have graciously agreed to share their vision. There’s personal history, too, from adventures in gardening to memories of my aunts and my grandfathers.

You complete the experience.

  1. Hello, Wandering Youth! Many apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I’m honored that you’ve nominated me for the awards but haven’t had time to follow up on the process. In any case, many thanks for thinking of CatRutgers4art. By the way, I love your “Waterfall” series … beautiful structure and colors!
