Preview Wednesday 8th May
Exhibition 9th May to 15th June 2019
Cathie Pilkington started collaborating with Paula Rego in 2005 when she was asked by Rego to make her an octopus which Rego then used as a props for the composition of ‘The Fisherman’ in the same year. There partnership went on and Rego asked Cathie to make models/mannequins to use in her artworks.
‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ is an exhibition of lithographs by Paula Rego & Cathie Pilkington and is a celebration of these two great women artists who though generationally apart make their artworks around unconventional and transgressive images of femininity. Cathie Pilkington is best known for her sculptural and installation work but she is an a lithographer and as her recent show at Pallant House attests when she displayed her prolific printmaking alongside the artworks from the Pallant collections as well as her sculptural work.
