Artist, Transition Gallery

Cathy Lomax

Cathy Lomax is a London based artist and winner of the 2016 Contemporary British Painting Prize. On completing an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins in 2002, she set up Transition Gallery in East London. She also edits two art and culture magazines, Arty and Garageland.

In 2016 Lomax started a PhD at Queen Mary University of London, researching the role of makeup in the creation of the female star image. Her artwork assimilates the seductive imagery of film, fame and fashion and juxtaposes it with personal narratives and the everyday. The resulting paintings and installations play with history by combining influences from disparate sources to form new groupings and categories.
