Catherine Cassidy

Thanks for listening to this weeks podcast we were lucky to be able to visit the amazing artist Catherine Cassidy in Cronulla who told us about her no fear attitude to painting from her early days of painting in oils to her current practise of using anything that works.

Catherine Cassidy's work can be found on her website https://catherinecassidy.studio
or on her instagram https://www.instagram.com/catherinecassidyartist/?hl=en

Julie and I spoke of our online classes we have just finished at https://nas.edu.au

Catherine spoke of her art education she attended Tafe and National Art school to do a masters.

Catherines goal in her artwork is to discover in the landscape, by a certain way of handling paint she retrieves that collective memory of the landscape - she has to keep reminding herself regularly of this need to be immersed in the natural environment.

Catherine's attitude was so refreshing to talk too and very honest about her work. She went to art school to prove to herself that she did not need to go. She feels that she works better by being isolated - she wants to be stimulated by the natural world not other artists work.

Catherine prefers to work on polyester or board and loves to use acrylic and oil sticks made by Sennelier.

We spoke of Quentin Blake on isolation art school using a homemade mix of oil sticks watch the you tube video here

Catherine quotes the artist George Baselitz on her website
‘The artist must deny everything, that’s their job.’

Catherines favourite art tool is her finger or a long haired hog haired filbert.
