Hang Tough presents a debut solo show of prints by Cate Doyle.
Cate Doyle is a London based Irish artist and designer. A year in the print room at UAL amongst the ink and scrim first cemented her love affair with printmaking.
Now based at Bainbridge Print Studios, Cate has devoted her time to making new work inspired by the land, sky and sea she finds on her travels to remote places. She pursues her etching practice through the investigation and utilisation of abstract marks made and found, offering more than a pictorial representation of landscape. She seeks to evoke the feelings experienced whilst in a surrounding and in this way hopes the atmosphere of her work is familiar to the viewer. Creating and questioning a sense of place and connection is integral to her thought process.
Cate has exhibited her prints in group shows in London and Dublin including Hang Tough’s Freedom Exhibition, Dulwich Picture Gallery and the Strand Gallery in London. Alongside her practice, Cate works as a Graphic Designer. Her expertise in both printmaking and design means she has been fortunate to work on a number of unique and exciting projects. Recently she was commissioned to create an art piece for RTE and has previously produced work for The Conrad Hotel and several prominent London restaurants.
