Catherine rarely works alone. Preferring cooperative projects, she usually limits herself to adding a few elements to existing artworks. In the past few years, she has however completed a few artworks on her own. These reflect an abstract, undetermined sensitivity to colours and luminous contrasts, as well as the wish to suggest fully engaged concentration despite the blatant absence of meaningful content. Parayre also enjoys drawing lines around such colourful surfaces, not to contain them, but to offer protective boundaries to potentially expanding shapes. She always uses a mix of acrylics, watercolours, and various pens and likes to include narrative writing in one of the three languages she uses daily (German, French, English).
