Catherine Manchester (1957-)
Catherine Manchester studied at the Ilam Art School from 1979 and graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts from Dunedin Polytechnic in 1984. She has been exhibiting successfully since 1986 with her work held in private and public collections throughout New Zealand.
Her expressionist and gestural brushwork, with her technique of building up and rubbing back layers of paint, reflects the deliberate brushwork of Rembrandt and the gestural intensity of Francis Bacon.
