CATHY GRAY

Adelaide, Australia

Cathy’s work is all hand drawn in archival ink.  The delicacy is reminiscent of an embroiderer’s needlework and in particular, lace.  The complexity of design and exquisite execution are evidence of Cathy’s devotion to her work.  “…As time went on my art became more and more complex and structured, with any one piece taking up to 200 hours.”

Her intricate and finely detailed works demonstrate a radial balance, drawing our gaze from the centre point.  The circle, considered the perfect shape in Ancient Greek culture, has been associated with both divine and natural symmetry.  It represents balance and can often symbolise harmony and unity.  Cathy’s works evoke harmonious balance and the peace felt creating the works is transferred to the viewer.  They invite quiet contemplation and introspection. Her work is available in Fine Art Reproduction Limited Edition Prints and originals may still be available on request.

Cathy has recently designed a range of glass panels used in splashbacks, outdoor showers and bathroom walls. Her designs are also being used on residential and commercial rugs and carpet. Probably the most popular is her range of yoga mats, skateboards and surfboards. Examples of each are available on her website.

Cathy regularly holds art classes for children in the school holidays and teachers mandala classes in both primary and high schools. Drawing mandalas is an art form that is achievable to all children and quickly builds confidence.

…“ Its such a pleasure to watch these children blossom and be drawn in to the process”.

She has more recently teamed up with Roaming Zen to hold classes as part of their retreats.

Her original hand drawn works are available, as are her Fine Art Reproduction limited edition prints produced on Hahnemühle German Etching paper.

More recently Cathy has developed an open edition range of work, this range is now available through several new and exciting collaborations.
