Catherine Bourassa-Hébert is a Canadian artist working in both Montreal and Boston. In her practice, the artist is primarily a painter, working with abstract geometric forms and splashes of bright, varied colour.

Throughout her portfolio, Catherine demonstrates a great sense of visual balance in her artworks, and an eye for compositions that focus just as much on negative space as on forms and figures. Across four series of Circle studies, the artist utilizes similar circular forms while altering the surrounding space and use of colour to create vastly different images. In series like these, where one figure or element remains consistent across numerous picture planes, it’s easy to see how much a slight tweak to colour relationships and placement of figures can make a huge difference in the overall feeling of a piece.

In her Paintings (other) gallery, Catherine showcases a process of experimentation with a wider variety of textures and aesthetics. Moments from works in this gallery sometimes appear elsewhere, and sometimes are exclusive to this realm of less-rigid abstraction.
