"In thinking of the current events happening in our lives today, global pandemic and black lives matter movement, it made me think of how art plays an important role in people’s lives. With sheltering in place and social distancing, art is a lifeline to the outside world, to an internal world, to another world that takes you out of the 'Groundhog Dayness' of the current times.  In the Black Lives Matter movement, art has been pouring on the blank canvases of storefront plywood protections in support of the movement. People are having their minds and eyes opened to the racial injustices that have been perpetuated for centuries. My artwork is in response to the solitude and isolation one can feel in quarantine and as a person of color, my hope that change is coming for the better." —Catherine Gutierrez

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Catherine Gutierrez is an architect and fine artist based in San Francisco, CA.  She was born and raised in the Bay Area and received a Bachelor of Arts under Architecture with a Visual Studies emphasis from the University of California, Berkeley. 

"Art, to me, is about connection... a connection to oneself, a connection to others, a connection to Mother Earth, a connection to the Universe. 
In my work, you can find yourself experiencing the awe of nature or the feeling of floating through another planet.  While living on our world, there are other worlds we occupy in the depths of our conscious and subconscious.  Dreams influence my paintings, and in my dreams, I've flown through these worlds and danced as if I was levitating in the clouds.
In some of my creations, you may find yourself standing on a shore in Hawaii, smelling the salty air and feeling the sun on your face.  In others, you can be floating through a nebula in outer space and feeling what it would be like to be wrapped in indigo.
In the end, through my artistic explorations, my hope is for you to connect to yourself and know you are part of something bigger.” - Catherine Gutierrez
