Cate Whittemore is an American artist, teacher, and theatrical painter who has collaboratively created scenery for movies, television, and Broadway hits, including the currently running “The Book of Mormon”. Realizing myriad set designs has made her fluent in many styles and techniques. Her work embodies both classical and contemporary technique, figurative and non-objective imagery, in which she finds metaphysical meaning. “Painting can be a way to access one’s subtler self, transcending the intellect. Exploring the instability and fluid logic of paint allows alternative information to flow.”
My painting practice is an adaptable, flexible approach to creative, visual engagement, embodying fluctuating states of mind, and diverse elements. Expressively drawing and painting, curating, teaching, and writing all help me by fostering self-examination, self-awareness, and self-reliance.
