Catherine E Greene is an established figurative sculptor working in bronze and latterly mixed media. Her work to date ranges from large scale civic, to private commissions and large exhibition pieces to smaller sculptures which explore the figure in the context of the sensual and often surreal world which they inhabit.
Major commissions include the equestrian memorial of the patriot Thomas Francis Meagher in Waterford, the memorial to the much loved comedian Dermot Morgan, Merrion Square Dublin and the central altarpiece sculpture of the Crucified Christ in the new Basilica of Fatima Portugal. Other commissions include large bronze works for Ard Scoil na Trionoide in Athy and Mount Anville Secondary School, Dublin.
She has exhibited consistently at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin, where she was an invited artist on two occasions. Latterly she has exhibited at the Royal Ulster Academy in Belfast.
She also completed a major work for The Sutherland School of Law in University College Dublin and had a one man show of large works in the Assembly Rooms in Dublin, having held five previous shows from the Cross Gallery to the Solomon Gallery in Dublin and the Kenny Gallery in Galway. Furthermore, she has been an invited artist to Boyle Arts festival and Eigse Visual in Carlow.
Last year she was awarded a residency in the Centre Culturel Irlandaise, Paris where she spent several weeks creating drawings from the cemeteries of Père Lachaise and Monmartre and the Cernuisi Museum.
She has exhibited frequently in the Botanic Gardens, Dublin as part of Sculpture in Context Annual Exhibition where she has shown large figurative work.
