Cathy Lomax completed her MA in Fine Art at Central St Martins in 2003. Her interests lie in fame, myth making and duplication, with her work often charting a curious contemporary longing for something unobtainable. Her recent exhibitions include The Secret of England?s Greatness, Hanger-7 Salzburg, Austria; Puce Moment, Transition Gallery, London; Flash Company, English Folk Dance and Song Society, Cecil Sharp House, London and Anopseudonymous, Five Hundred Dollars, London. Her work has recently been selected for the Salon Art Prize 2010 and The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2010.
Her Page 3 painting is of Rosie (White). "I wanted to convey the innocent fun of page 3 - how it is in the tradition of saucy British humour - like a Donald McGill postcard. The figure is quite simply painted, almost cartoon like - these girls girls are presented in a cartoon-like way in the paper - with the captions of their views of the news of the day - it is all tongue in cheek and not very serious. Rosie is cropped - as though she is peeping into the canvas - again another nod to cheeky peek-a-boo humour.'
