"...impossible worlds, and dreamscapes that are wistful, melancholy, unique, and playful."
Cathy Frank is a Sydney based artist & designer who works in both digital and analogue media.
From an early age, she demonstrated an innate artistic passion and continued to bring her creative obsession to fruition, building her body of work and evolving her craft.
Frank is inspired by human interaction, emotion and exploring the intersection between fantasy and reality, incorporating a sense of transition in her work using varied media.
A self-described visual storyteller, her works dissect the essence of memory and pseudo memory. At the crux of her work, she extracts fragmented moments lost in time and dreams, nurturing a sense of nostalgia for a time, place, and feeling you’ve never known.
Frank layers textures, bright colour and found images utilising surrealist techniques and manipulating her medium. She creates vibrant, impossible worlds, and dreamscapes that are wistful, melancholy, unique, and playful.
Frank has developed her own visual vocabulary and distinctive style. She welcomes us to view the world as she sees it, inviting you to experience our universe with a new expansive and compelling perspective.
Frank has been featured on the cover of the debut issue of Women Beyond 40 Magazine with her piece "The Brave Are Free", and has also appeared in Art/Edit Magazine as a featured artist, and was inducted into the CATC Design School Hall of Fame.
