Introduction
Norman Catherine (born September 1949 in East London, South Africa) is a South African artist whose œuvre spans painting, sculpture, printmaking and mixed media. He collaborated closely with iconic South African artist Walter Battiss on the Fook Island concept from 1973. "In the thirty years spanning his past and present output, Catherine’s visual trademarks have included rough-edged comical and nightmarish forms, rendered in brash cartoon colours. His idiosyncratic vision – a combination of dark cynicism and exuberant humour, as well as his innovative use of everyday material, has secured his place at the forefront of South African contemporary art" Hazel Friedman on Norman Catherine [1]. He lives and works from his home, named Fook Manor, near the Hartbeespoort Dam outside of Pretoria.
