Catherine Biju

Catherine uses painting to rediscover deep-rooted aspects of her culture and heritage. Her work takes a critical view of the cultural and perspective change she has undergone as an international student, being introduced to contemporary art for the first time. Taking Indian historical paintings as her starting point, she explores the hidden compositions within these works, combining them with visual codes from western painters such as Chuck Close and Adam Lister. The fragmentation and ‘slow burn’ effects of these artists, and a variety of technological references, result in a highly textural and sophisticated composition being brought to the revisions of the celebrated Indian works of Raja Ravi Varma and Indian Miniatures.

Catherine adapts the histories of formalism and minimalism from an Indian perspective, inviting viewers to appreciate formal aspects of the works.
