Catherine Pilgrim

Drawing for the sheer joy in getting lost in the details of poetry and the unknown, Catherine lovelingly makes collectible and award-winning works on paper.

Meticulous, considered drawing is the basis for Catherine Pilgrim’s practice including lithographs, drawings and textiles – with absence, contemporary still life and historical narratives influencing much of the subject matter.

Catherine has exhibited widely since 1994, when she returned to Australia after studying lithography and drawing in Washington DC, USA. In 2011 Catherine completed her Master of Fine Art (Research) at Monash University, Melbourne. Her research was based on the subjective process of capture, which occurs in making a representational image.

This respected artist has won a number of awards for her intricate works on paper including the Australian Print Workshop Collie Trust Award. Her works are held in public and private collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Geelong Regional Art Gallery, National Australia Bank, Perri Cutten and Castlemaine Art Museum.

Catherine’s most recent solo exhibition titled ‘Mrs Larritt in Upside-down Country’ was held at Dudley House Bendigo in November 2018. This exhibition was supported by Creative Victoria through a Regional Centre for Culture, Local Makers Grant. A second iteration of this exhibition titled ‘Mrs Larritt’ was held at Gallery fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne, late October to mid November, 2019.
