Catherine Reinhart

I pray.

I make art.

I drink coffee in the shower. 

 My artistic voice is one of second chances. I create works from a state of irrepressible hope, a pessimist compelled to optimistic art. Since the birth of my daughter, I have created several bodies of artwork dealing with the themes of domesticity and the redemption of forgotten or undignified things. Through a circuitous working process I use past projects to inform new bodies of work. I am continually looking for the connections between my works made with several media. From intuitive process drawings to immersive textile installation - an aesthetic of redemption guides my iterative studio practice. I build a materials vocabulary through labor-intensive textile processes, drawings, and prints. These studies in mark making result in vibrant, expansive art project, which elicit wonder and kindle hope.
