Robert Cattan, White Plains Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Born in Montevideo Uruguay, my family immigrated to New York when I was a teenager. A high school photography class sparked my interest in the field and gave me a tool to express myself in a "foreign" country. Photography was my "voice" and i have been making images ever since. Over the past 30 years Ive worked commercially in a variety of venues including advertisement, media and fine art but all the while driven and focused on creating images that are my interpretation of reality. Digitally combining textures, color, light and painting, my images create an altered reality inspired by the Hudson River School of Painting.
