In one hand, none of the work here is new, and on the other it is all new work. Initially my impulse was to try and show something about how I see photographically, but I do that on Instagram and why not try something new with some old friends? From one vantage point my work is painting or painting adjacent, also abstract and narrative... also sculptural. Also ‘in reaction to’ best art handling practices (see @preptantrumshow for one of my ‘passion projects’).

Please enjoy some new arrangements of old objects I’ve been playing around with. Also, some of these paintings have never been shown and I think some of them are pretty awesome. Follow me on Instagram for more context @ccuehara and @preptantrumshow. It’s a fun fraught journey and it’s just starting to get interesting.

Catherine was born June 8, 1971 in Berkeley California at 11:11am. She attended Malcolm X Elementary School, Berkeley High, UCDavis, and received her MFA in painting from Hunter College in 2000, she has at least twenty years of experience Art Handling, Packing, and Logistics, and she has personally painted the walls of at least 5 Puget Sound area museums.
