Cathy Lomax is an artist, writer and curator. She runs Transition Gallery in east London and edits and publishes two art and culture magazines, Arty and Garageland. Recent shows curated by Lomax include "˜Too Much is not Enough', a study of fame and celebrity which included work by Jessica Voorsanger and Sarah Doyle; "˜E8', a look at the area around the gallery which included Tom Hunter and Laura Oldfield Ford and was accompanied by a publication, and "˜Bad Animals', a group show about miscreant wildlife.
Alongside Transition, Lomax is a practising artist. Her work often takes the form of groups of paintings, which may be combined with other elements to create fragmented narratives that chart a curious contemporary longing for something unobtainable. Her recent exhibitions include 2010 Jerwood Drawing Prize, HangART-7 in Saltzburg, Austria and "˜The Count of Monte Cristo: Island of True Stories' at The Phoenix Gallery, Exeter.
