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.
