Liberty Realm

Pulsing and surging with dark energies, Cathy Ward's mesmerising drawings capture a restlessly inquiring spirit through the meticulous rendering of organic forms. Their mystery, emotional depth, and enveloping sensuality recall an occluded art-historical canon of weird psychedelia, hermetic alchemical illustrations and outsider horror vacui. Liberty Realm presents a broad survey of works ranging from the acclaimed drawings exhibited recently in “Phantasmata” at The Good Luck Gallery (Los Angeles), “Talespinning” at the Drawing Center (New York), “Romantic detachment” at PS1 MOMA (New York), and "Utopia" at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center (Sheboygan, Wisconsin), to new explorations and insightful glimpses of her earlier output and formative practice. Substantial essays by Edward Gómez, Doug Harvey, and Robert Wallis further untangle these fascinating phantasmal worlds.

Reviews

Cathy Ward is an incredibly unique artist, unveiling cosmologies and angelic and demonic heirarchies within the confines of London. She is in line with the likes of William Blake, Osman Spare, and Madge Gill, a line of mystical english artists without compare. No matter what medium she works with, her output is nothing short of amazing. Ensorcelling and transcendent are the only way i can come close to describing her body of work.
