Cath Riley, 1952 | Hyperrealist Illustrator


Cath (Catherine) Riley, was born in Keighley. She gained a first class honours degree in embroidery and a MA in fine art from Manchester Polytechnic and quickly gained attention for her three-dimensional art work.
In 1979, for example, George Melly purchased her mixed media collage, "The lady with the hat", for the Arts Council Collection, and other pieces have been acquired by Granada Television, North West Arts, and for Calderdale Museums and Galleries.

The emphasis, and main body of my work, has always been of a three-dimensional nature, but over the last few years, I have given time to develop and explore new skills, particularly the use of pencil on paper to produce some of the pencil drawings.
The drawings are part of an on-going evolutionary process of exploration and development, and thus serve only to mark and represent a particular stage in my abilities and understanding.
Current on-going experimental 'drawing' includes very large scale drawing, based around the human figure, which are very different in character from the pencil portrait and 'flesh' figure drawings which are featured here. Some of the new work is abstract in nature.
Examples of this 'new direction' and emphasis will appear on the site quite soon! Many of my drawings to date have been exhibited, and many commissioned, some privately, others for use in magazine features and advertising.
Whilst 3D art has always played a central part in her creative output, in recent years Cath"s detailed pencil drawings have featured in exhibitions and have been purchased and published by companies and organisations, including Nike, Adidas, The New York Times, The Economist and Aston Martin.

L'artista, Cath (Catherine) Riley, è nata nel 1952 a Keighley. Ha conseguito una laurea con lode in ricamo ed un master in belle arti presso il Politecnico di Manchester e ha guadagnato rapidamente l'attenzione per le sue opere tridimensionali.
Nel 1979, ad esempio, George Melly acquistò il suo collage di tecnica mista, "La signora col cappello", per la collezione Arts Council, ed altri pezzi furono acquisiti da Granada Television, North West Arts e da Calderdale Museums and Galleries.
Mentre l'arte 3D ha sempre avuto un ruolo centrale nella sua produzione creativa, negli ultimi anni i disegni a matita dettagliati di Cath sono stati presentati in mostre, sono stati acquistati e pubblicati da aziende ed organizzazioni, tra cui Nike, Adidas, The New York Times, The Economist e Aston Martin.
