Norman Catherine (b.1940)

Born in East London, South Africa, Catherine studied for an art matric, but that was where his studies ended. He is a slef taught artist, with a huge following throughout South Africa as well as abroad. In 1975 he moved to the Hartbeespoort Dam where he still resides today. A significant influence in his early work was that of Walter Battiss, with whom he developed the make believe world of “Fook Island”. His work conveys many a juxtaposition in the literal and imaginative, between humour and horror with much pathos. He has exhibited extensively with works in most major South African museums and corporate collections as well as the likes of Moma in New York.

We can also assist in sourcing, picture framing, hanging, restoration, valuation and resale of art works, as well as curate spaces and oversee collections.
