Catherine Cassidy

Catherine Cassidy is a Sydney-based painter, born in Ballarat, Victoria. Cassidy works within abstraction and concentrates on an ambiguous rather than a singular view of the landscape. Her work lifts away from the accepted Western canon of description of place and form and this plasticity of thought and action allows both paint and mark to carry a powerful vigour and story of their own. She is represented by AK Bellinger Gallery.

Not Touching the Void, Listening for the Drip: Witnessing Water Cycles

As I researched the area of ancient volcanic ground along the Loddon and Coliban Rivers in Central Victoria alongside my daughter, poet Bonny Cassidy (incidentally my old home grounds) my thoughts pushed further into the origins and beginnings of water systems and I began to think on how water is born, its actual beginnings in deep time.
