Cate Dudley Blue Mountains Artist

Cate Dudley

I like the way images create a narrative or suggest mythologies and the process of coaxing out those who lurks just around the corner from the workaday consciousness. I love the messiness and yumminess of playing with paint and seeing what emerges. The content is really an exploration of what it is the be a human being with all the beauty, vulnerabilities and paradoxes.

The current influencing factors in the brew include parenting a rapidly growing teenager, a small, friendly dog, friendships and the amazing Blue Mountains wilderness. Although these works are intrinsically personal they can be received as metaphor for shared human condition.
