Exploring and day-dreaming in her early years, the shape, light, and tropical urban wilderness of Sydney’s North Shore on her doorstep – developed her artistic appetite. Winding pathways beside the water, lined with tropical floral explosions fashioned her impression of the sublime – from the microscopic to the grandiose, none of this being accidental. An 8 week artist residency in Rome in 2017 broadened her understanding of ruins, fragments and the eternal.

Katherine Edwards McCubbin has a unique take on the world around her. A face, ethereal and evocative, emerges from an atmospheric swirl of brushstrokes. A flower blooms as a constellation in the foreground, and the sense of peering into both a microscope and upon the entire surface of the planet, merges into a playful symphony of spots, dots, daubs. Welcome to the world of Katherine Edwards McCubbin. A mid-career artist making her emphatic statement in her own very personal visual language.Her pictures combine, gestural marks of reduced colour, into mythic apparitions,  a product of a lifetime of dreaming and exploring the world of interiors, and the broader world of exteriors.Within that exchange of enclosed spaces, and the embrace of the physical world, she has found the ethereal, the ambiguities, and the suggestion of so much more.
