Katherine Boucher Beug
Katherine Boucher Beug originally from Princeton New Jersey, USA, has been working from her studio in Co. Cork since 1971. Her daily practice is drawing and sketchbook work which often includes text. Whether abstract or representational, her work comes from the same impulse. She seeks the unexpected. This expressive mode is coupled with a rigorous, on-going inquiry into colour dating from her teens when she studied Josef Albers, ‘Interaction of Color’ both in America and Germany. Boucher Beug’s work is represented in the collections of The Arts Council of Ireland, Bank of Ireland, Allied Irish Bank, University College Cork, Princeton University Library, Crawford Municipal Gallery and in many private collections in Ireland, Europe and the USA.
