Catherine Cassidy


CATHERINE CASSIDY is a Sydney-based artist, born in

Ballarat, Victoria. Educated at Melbourne’s RMIT and at the National Art School Sydney, she was awarded a Master of Fine Art in Painting in 2011.


She has been a finalist in many state and national awards including the Paddington Art Prize, AGNSW Dobell Drawing Prize, NSW Parliament House Plein-Air Painting Prize, Mosman Art Prize, Portia Geach Portrait Award and the prestigious National Works on Paper Award 2014 when her work was acquired for the permanent collection of Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery. Catherine is currently shortlisted for the Paddington ArtPrize 2019.


Cassidy has held regular solo and group shows in Sydney and in 2017 was invited by French artist Claire Colin-Collin to exhibit alongside 10 French contemporary abstractionists in Paris.


“Catherine Cassidy’s work has a bravura carried by its daubed and scribbled marks. Bold, dense, delicious. You can see the joy of her hand, the sure and deliberate erasures. She is brave, fearless, never afraid of clumsiness, prettiness, awkwardness or the wayward irreverence of childhood.”
