Hidden Door

Cat Madden

Visual Art

Exploring the painting process through an ongoing ‘react and reflect’ exchange between previous paintings made and those in progress, each painting presented represents a moment or fragment paused within this visual dialogue. With a focus on formal painting concerns and a more sculptural installation, Cat’s practice is underpinned by a temporal curation of paintings at varying stages of progression.

Hidden Door Festival 2018

Cat participated in Hidden Door 2018, translating the fluidity of paint into the open-ended arrangements of painted surfaces adorning the walls of an empty washroom in the Leith Theatre Cat responded to ‘push-pull’ oppositions in the nature of her compositions and the manner in which they were installed. The works were conceived through material oppositions, and a reactionary dialogue of trial and error evident through the traces left on the surfaces of the paintings.
