Cathie Pilkington RA is an artist whose work engages passionately and critically with the canonical history of figurative sculpture. Crossing the borders of traditional, modern and contemporary idioms, her work combines intensively modelled and painted sculptures within immersive installations comprising a diverse array of props, materials and studio furniture. Pilkington’s site-responsive installations are balanced ambivalently between chaos and precision and have been described as a kind of art historical fly-tipping.She studied at Edinburgh College of Art (1986-91)and The Royal College of Art (1995-97). She was elected Royal Academician in 2014. In 2016 she became professor of Sculpture at the Royal Academy Schools. Her upcoming show The Covering opens at Karsten Schubert on 14th February 2020.

Cathy Lomax is a London based artist and winner of the 2016 Contemporary British Painting Prize. On completing a MA in Fine Art at Central St Martins in 2002 she set up Transition Gallery in East London. She also edits two art and culture magazines, Arty and Garageland. In 2016 Lomax started a PhD at Queen Mary University of London, researching the role of makeup in the creation of the female film star image. Her artwork assimilates the seductive imagery of film, fame and fashion and juxtaposes it with personal narratives and the everyday. Her resulting paintings and installations play with history by combining influences from disparate sources to form new groupings and categories.
