It’s the final days of Cathy Staughton’s Wondrous Imaginarium and if you haven’t seen the show you should. It is a fabulous rollercoaster of Cathy’s lived and imagined life from the past three decades.
Curated by Dr Cheryl Daye and James McDonald, the exhibition is a survey of Cathy Staughton’s work over more than 25 years. Focusing on autobiographical themes and portrayals of the self through various characters or guises, Cathy employs recurring motifs such as Luna Park, religious iconography and anthropomorphised creatures, to depict a vividly lived experience and a richly imagined alternative reality.
Cathy Staughton’s Wondrous Imaginarium is supported by a full colour Leonard Joel Series catalogue, which vividly captures Staughton’s lived and dreamed experiences. This is Cathy Staughton’s fifth solo exhibition.
