Catalan characterizes his work as an “endless labyrinth with multiple entrances and exits,” each mark and material signifying something tangible in the real world. He uses words like falling roofs, walls, stairs, peaks, cables, floating canvases, vectors, hot and cold areas to explain the heterogeneous elements in his work. He creates visceral and cathartic spaces without falling into the metaphysical or the chaotic, with an impeccable awareness of defining each formal or material aspect of his compositions..
