Artist's forum - Catriona Stanton 


Charles Darwin University Master of Arts student Catriona Stanton will present the next School of Creative Arts and Humanities artist's forum today, Tuesday 27 March from 12.15pm to 1pm.

Catriona is currently exhibiting Estranged Tales at The Gallery of School of Creative Arts and Humanities.

Poetic imagination, the importance of reverie and thinking beyond the known world underpins this exhibition. The desire to find a visual language founded on memoirs and the phenomena of the imagination lead to the notion of childhood. Home, the first world of the child, is explored as a site of security and discomfort through the uncanny.

Fairy tales, the literary staple for many children, are inherent in this body of work. Soft sculptures, toothpick constructions, drawings and casts in wax and bronze are some of the mediums employed to explore the imaginary realm.

Inspired by a range of themes including towers, forests, the wolf, Catriona’s final installation is remarkable. Come along to find out more concerning her work and practice.

This presentation takes place in room 3, building 24, Casuarina campus, Charles Darwin University.
