RESERVE

01.03 – 01.4.2017

A solo exhibition of paintings by Cathy Layzell.

Working in a gestural and abstract style, Cathy Layzell investigates humankind’s complex evolving relationship to nature, where an impulse to shape, tame and control the natural world lives alongside a desire to yield to its wildness and its danger.

At close range, these paintings constructed from the textures of nature – rock, foliage, air, and water, appear nearly abstract – a dancing network of innumerable brushstrokes, some parallel, others looser and more rapidly applied. Stepping back, these varied marks coalesce into the shimmering effects of an illusionary light. The paintings explore the blurred boundaries between Nature and artifice and how visual-processing systems shape our feelings about what we see.

With the disappearance of most of our primeval forests we have left only what are called, oxymoronically, wilderness ‘parks’ or ‘reserves’. Reserves are intended to conserve nature in a representative way and to sustain biodiversity. But the reality is that they are increasingly relics of how ecosystems looked before humans became dominant. This body of work explores the vestigial primal link we still feel towards a wilderness that hardly exists anymore.

WILDERNESS

02.03 – 26.03.2016

A solo exhibition of recent paintings by Cathy Layzell

The word ‘wilderness’ is linked historically to a continually evolving relationship between man and the environment. Up until the eighteenth century, the term ‘wilderness’ was associated with spaces of despair or fear. Since the nineteenth century it has been reimagined through the cultural idea of the sublime as a rare place where one can glimpse the face of God. What we seek in this concept of wilderness is a place without the anchors of our civilizing culture. A place without the artificial social supports of familiar ego structures.

What do we escape from when we go to nature? Perhaps we escape the biblical wilderness of our own urban lives.

This ironic twist forms the foundation of Layzell’s exhibition where the artist dissolves her image space into pure, formal, abstraction. The works move ironically from the more comforting natural and represenational to the disorientating neons in works that challenge traditional ideas of pictorial landscape.

Layzell’s wilderness is a place of paint and perception, a bold exploration of the limits of the illusionistic image.

POLYNESIA

20.05 – 20.06.15

Following in the footsteps of two great masters Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin, this two-person exhibition of recent paintings by Paul Senyol & Cathy Layzell, explores the islands of Polynesia as its central theme. Layzell has worked predominantly in oil on canvas, while Senyol has chosen mixed media on board for this show. The artists have also created two large-scale collaborative paintings towards the exhibition. Polynesia represents a collection of abstract paintings, which depict the diversity of the central & southern pacific through unexpected perspectives, hues & brushstrokes. The paintings leave the viewer with an intense awareness of the power & unpredictability of nature and this exotic paradise.

Cathy Layzell

Weaving abstraction together with realism, Cathy Layzell uses complex colour and her own intuitive and painterly brush strokes to investigate humankind’s evolving relationship to nature. The impulse to preserve, tame and control the natural world lives alongside a desire to yield to its wildness and its danger. Her vivid, atmospheric oil paintings use a number of recurring motifs, taken from natural environments. At close range, these paintings – constructed from the textures of rock, foliage, air, and water – appear highly abstracted, a dancing network of innumerable brush strokes. Stepping back, these varied marks coalesce into the shimmering effects of light. The paintings explore the blurred boundaries between Nature and artifice and how visual-processing systems shape our feelings about what we see. From 2003 to 2007 Layzell was a returning Resident Artist at the Painting School of Montmirail in the South West of France (near Toulouse). She studied at Rhodes University and completed a Post-graduate diploma in Fine Art from Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2013.
