1958 · France
Capturing striking views that often depict figures within various landscapes, French painter Catherine Seher conjures a powerful sense of anonymity and isolation within her body of work.
Capturing the essence of a given environment but extracting from it any signifiers of meaning, Seher thus reduces the art of both the landscape and the figure to its most element, forcing the viewer of her work to consider the very mechanics by which each component of the work is created. The result is a body of work that taps into the universality of art itself, one anonymous figure or vista at a time.
Born in Paris in 1958, Seher graduated from the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1983. Today she is based in Paris but has enjoyed the showcase of her work in locales across Europe. Recent exhibitions of her work include those at Galerie Christine Colon, Liege (2017); Galerie GNG, Paris (2018); Galerie Peters-Barenbrock, Berlin (2019).
