Catherine Bailey

Since graduating from the National Art School in Sydney, NSW, Catherine has been the recipient of two major art awards, Emerging Artist on the Rocks, Sydney (2006) and the Waverly Art Prize (2007) and a residency at the Cite Des Arts International Paris (2008). In 2011 she was successful in securing a Regional Arts Fund (RAF) grant to do a major Public Art project The Sea Hammock – What Lies Beneath and has subsequently been the feature artist on two RAF funded Projects including The Wisdom of the Elders Project (2012 – Video) and The Portland Botanical Gardens Art and Community Engagement Project (2013 – Painting/Photography/Installation).  In 2014 Catherine initiated and facilitated the establishment of The Space, a short term, self funded residency for writers and artists and the Virtual Arboretum Portland, a four artist, interactive, installation project with public art outcomes.

She is also currently artist in Residence at the Narrawong and District Primary School as part of the Vicarts Artists in Schools Program using street art techniques to build a community mural.

My work re-contextualises, re-historicizes and reanimates the meaning of lost, long forgotten places, stories and objects in a world, which is straining against its desire to consume. Images, darkly humoured and irreverent, in the form of old images from antique books, magazines, photos or graphically designed postcards are juxtaposed beside fabric, original paintings and installations, people and found objects to bring awareness to our current environmental predicaments.
I work in the visual arts using painting, installation and recently photography to explore themes about the environment.
