a-n Reviews
The Immaculate Dream at Collyer Bristow Gallery
- review by David Minton...
’Toro’ is the term attached to an image in Cathy Lomax’s ‘Film Diary’ as the presumed heroine appears to lift her skirt in provocative imitation of a teasing matador. A kind of neither/nor/either/or image it is disposed to have whatever meanings a viewer is disposed to bring, to what might  easily be a still of a  woman playing with a child. Her paintings from film stills tease and intrigue. A sense of the  furtive in the cropped images and their quick manner of painting is reinforced by  footnotes – ‘they were in the house of fun’ ….. ‘she had gate crashed’…’..he told her about a sexual experience he had had…’
Beauty Salon Zine
Jungle Red: the cosmetic allure of exoticism. The zine was made to accompany the exhibition Beauty Salon at the Alison Richard Building, Cambridge.
Beauty Papers
Cathy Lomax: Makeup. Artist. An interview with John William. 'Cathy Lomax started out painting faces in a peach pinny working the Miss Selfridge makeup counter. Then it was the faces of models, for fashion bibles like The Face, i-D and Arena. Now Cathy paints in oils and acrylics rather than blusher and eyeshadows, but cosmetics, glamour and fashion linger like a lipstick kiss.'
