Catherine Cassidy

Night Turpentine Road, mixed media on polyester, 150 x 150 cm.

Catherine Cassidy is having a good art year - she is currently showing simultaneously in Paris and Sydney. Cassidy was invited by French artist Claire Colin Collin to exhibit in a group exhibition exploring the 'intuitive' in painting at Progress Gallery. At the same time she has a solo exhibition at Art2Muse gallery, Sydney, 'Miao Miao'. Recently Catherine was a finalist in the Paddington Art Prize for landscape painting where she won the Soffala Cottage Residency Prize. A masters graduate, 2011, National Art School, Sydney, Catherine's work holds a boldness that does not conform to the well worn iconography of the Australian landscape painting.

Celestial cartography 10.
Artist talk Saturday December 9 at 2pm.

'This body of work has developed from my interest in mark making and the mechanics of repetition. The composition of each work begins with a grid, a system which provides pictorial structure while allowing for endless variation, and satisfies my own formalist tendencies. The process is slow and instinctual, with the outcome of each work remaining open rather than predetermined.

In the end, each image shares a common structure but reveals a unique cartography, juxtaposing the intuitive process of mark making with the repetitive nature of patterns and the infinite complexities of nature and spatial relationships.' Damian Moss, 2017.

'By removing a portion of inked paper a mark is added. This addition through removal is one of the many contradictions in the work. The hundreds of tiny tears, each one different, are gestures defined by geometry... They are equally musical scores, transcriptions, a map of the sky or land, an abacus or traces of data.' Damian Moss, 2016.

I’m not down, by The Clash

'I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
But I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, I'm not down...'

Many of the artists take a meditative, immersive approach to their practice, performing repetitive or incremental actions to form work using a generative or accretive method. Form and line may relate to music, syncopation, a mapping or charting of time, space and place. Others take meditative thought and ideas as their subject, exploring and employing notions of mindfulness and transcendence. Still others provide a space of clarity and contemplation. offering a respite for the eyes and mind.

The expansive interval between hand and eye, marks made and perceived is explored and presented in myriad forms, providing a location for silent reflection.

'Group Formalism', Bundoora Homestead, Northern Melbourne to June 18.

'Group Formalism brings together artists who explore abstraction and formalism, often in reductive ways through colour, symbols, line, shape and texture. The exhibition seeks to question to what extent our perception of the world and indeed abstraction, is governed by our own personal and subjective triggers. It also examines the role of language and semiotics in the development and appreciation of abstraction. The featured artists are Peter Adsett, Craig Easton, Denise Green, PJ Hickman, Robin Kingston, Aaron Martin, Antonia Sellbach and Peter Summers. Curated by Jeremy Gales.'

Phyllida Barlow 'Juliet Balcony' Venice, British Pavilion.

Phyllida Barlow, at 73 was chosen to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale, 2017. Barlow taught at the Slade School, London, for forty years and was a little known artist until picked up by a mega international gallery. Great to see a senior woman artist getting due recognition. Bravo.
