David Caton Description

 

 

DAVID CATON (b. 1955)

 

David Caton is a painter whose work spans three decades of exploring landscape, still life, architectural, and mythological painting. Caton began to study painting during his high school years in Houston. He earned his BFA from the University of Houston and completed his MFA graduate studies at Yale University.

Throughout his early years, Caton exhibited regularly and was invited to be in group shows. He has since had numerous solo exhibitions, and his paintings are featured in corporate and private collections across the country.

Caton has a close affinity for the terrain of the west, especially that of the Big Bend region of Texas and the states of Utah and Arizona. He travels to these areas regularly to gather plein air painting material for future paintings. He usually executes studies in oil or pastel before completing the larger canvases. His refined technique and love for depicting the grandeur and drama that exist in nature have generated works that are both monumental and compelling.
