Cathy Bion (France)
Cathy Bion is a visual artist based in Paris, France, whose tool is not a brush but a camera.
Harbors are her favorite subject and she travels all around the world to capture their essence : from Morocco to Brittany, from Portugal to Australia.…
In the radiant light of the docks, she looks at colors and materials with the eye of a painter, as a testimony of man’s activity. She zooms in on a little scratch, a rust spot, a specific shade, all traces transformed by the passage of time and the secret alchemy of nature.
Focusing on colours and natural or man-made materials, her photography is abstract and always unretouched, producing an effect not dissimilar to painting.
Cathy Bion started photography at the age of 8 and began traveling as a teenager.
Her photobook Couleurs d’alizés (Trade winds colours), showcasing her art and featuring writings from art critics has been published by Critères Editions in 2010 .
For the past 15 years, Cathy has been organizing art workshops and creating artist books. Her pictures have been published on books covers, cards and posters : they are part of public and private collections in France, Morocco, Japan and Australia.
Her work has been exhibited in France and abroad (Japan, Morocco, Australia, Hong-Kong).
