From The Nail Factory
Cate Ross is across-media artist, a master printmaker, illustrator arts activist using a blend of visual and performance arts forms. Cate's images are explorations into key problems of war, capitalism, the media industry and societal injustices. In her work, Cate attempts to discuss and transcend these human predicaments to create some sort of visual prayer for peace and equality or at least create resting places for contemplation. Cate's images aim to offer insight through the act of of making art and they are portals for meditation and enquiry."To be questioning is to be problem solving' is the tenet guiding Cate's multi-faceted art works.
Literal representations layer over metaphysical symbols, all coalescing into rich tapestries of information and visual play .Cate often uses a projector or lights a candle, allowing her to enter an 'altered state' of looking and enquiry unfettered by the normal mundane thought process.
