recent paintings

12 july - 10 august 2019

Consisting of loose organic patterning, Cathy Blanchflower's current work utilises colour, shape and tonal relationships to create spaces of change and movement.

The patterns are boundless and can be perceived to continue beyond the frame suggesting unending repetitions of infinite nature and streams of consciousness. Elements in the work recall perceptions, memories, sounds/music and visual information that is broken down and translated into a concentrated visual language. Each painting has 2 or 3 layers, or 'fields' attempting to exist in harmony with each other. The responses of each shape and colour to the other sets up the energy within the work. Blanchflower attempts to find a balance between order and disorder, stillness and movement and a micro and macro view of the world.

Cathy Blanchflower has been exhibiting nationally since the early 1990s when she graduated from Curtin University. Her paintings can be found the Art Gallery of WA, National Gallery of Australia, Artbank and several university, hospital and corporate collections across Australia.
