Cathy Lomax was born in 1963 in Croydon and lives and works in London. She completed an MA in Fine Art at Central St Martins, London in 2003 and went on to set up Transition Gallery and the art magazines, Arty and Garageland. Her work usually takes the form of groups of paintings and examines a curious contemporary longing for something unobtainable, often focusing on female archetypes and utilising images from popular culture. She has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and her work is in several high profile collections including the David Roberts collection. In 2009 she was selected for the Salon 09 exhibition in London. Other recent exhibitions include The Golden Record at Collective Gallery, Edinburgh and New London School at Mark Moore Gallery, LA, USA.
