Cathy Lomax: Artist's TalkMay 23

A Talk by CATHY LOMAX; Winner of the Contemporary British Painting Awards 2016

Cathy Lomax’s work is rooted in the romance of popular culture, assimilating media fictions and mythologies of fame and juxtaposing them with personal identities, secrets and the everyday, to create a seductive visual narrative. Photography, often the source of imagery, is reconfigured to create a wish-list of popular and
obscure icons - particularly from English history and contemporary culture. Her work takes the form of groups of paintings, which may be combined with other elements to form fragmented stories that chart a curious contemporary longing for something unobtainable.
