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…’
