Saul Cathcart is a Cornish artist from the Launceston area. He holds a degree in Fine Art Sculptrure from the Winchester School of Art, Hampshire. He has now returned to his Cornish roots where he has remained ever since.
“(…) each painting in Saul Cathcart’s Irish collection develops a small but fascinating narrative. Most landscape pictures are what they are, a snapshot that evokes the place, the shapes, the light. Saul’s work does this brilliantly, but it also does more. Alongside the paradoxical blend of rich abstract marks with meticulous detail, we also get tales of the landscape: a cloud that has whipped across a sky, a hint of sun sharp and colourful as a laser, the incoming of a tide. Each painting seems to be able to encompass time passing in a place: gusty wind changing the forms of trees, the blustery journey of an incoming rainstorm, the sun going down. ” Sue King, Cornwall, England
