Catherine Breer grew up in Seoul, Korea, and began drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil in her hand. She studied painting and drawing at the Atlanta College of Art and The Museum of Fine Arts School, Boston. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout New England, and is in private collections all over the world.
I am always looking for that moment when the light hits just right, the shadows lengthen and ordinary objects become something quite extraordinary. Reflections appear on the water, light dances on the side of a building, bottles line up in a window just right. It is these moments in time that I want to capture.
I have been heavily influenced by the vivid colors and graphic patterns found in Korean art and as a result, color and composition are the most important elements in my work.
