Cathy Lomax’s (Abbey Fellow in Painting, April – June 2014) work is rooted in the romance of popular culture. She assimilates media fictions, mythologies and the realities around fame and glamour, and juxtaposes these with elements of personal identity to create new narratives that skirt around reality to hint at a curious contemporary longing for something unobtainable. Her focus in Rome has been on the city’s relationship with appearance and how this has been represented on film. This has manifested in a series of works preoccupied with re-creation, emptiness, transience and the surface of things.

Le opere di Cathy Lomax (Abbey Fellow in Painting, aprile – giugno 2014) sono radicate nel romanticismo della cultura popolare.  L’artista assimila le finzioni mediatiche, le mitologie e le realtà intorno a fama e glamour, giustapponendoli ad elementi dell’identità personale, creando così nuovi racconti che confinano con la realtà, e suggerendo ad un curioso desiderio contemporaneo per qualcosa di inottenibile.  Nella città di Roma, l’interesse dell’artista si è focalizzato sulla relazione esistente tra letteratura, cinema e glamour, manifestando una particolare attenzione per la ri-creazione, la vuotezza e la superficie delle cose.
