Sad stories of beauty, exploitation and prestige
4 - 29 July 2006
Gallery open Thurs, Fri & Sat 12-6pm
The first show at Rosy Wilde's new location is a collection of paintings by Cathy Lomax
"The women that I always wanted to look like.
Sweet little Mary Bell, forever faded in inky newsprint and reproduced again and again.
Marina Duchess of Kent, mid century Beatonesque icon, now slipping out of relevance.
The Royal Sisterhood, bound by duty.
Impossibly beautiful ballerinas
My vignettes are groups of characters fading in and out of history, in and out of my consciousness.
These little snippets are brief scenes from a bigger picture,
tiny clues that when pieced together make a story.
The women inside the paintings are freed from association and regrouped.
They cluster together, receding or rising from the frame.
The romance of popular culture is a powerful thing."
