This September, Cathy Lomax will be responding to the DOLPH brief focusing on one of her greatest influences – America.

About

Cathy Lomax is interested in how we consume information and misinformation alike, weaving it together with our own experiences to create a comfort blanket of connections that often bear little relationship to reality.

For DOLPH, Lomax focuses on one of her greatest influences – America. The title of the show, American Tan, is taken from a hosiery shade that was common throughout the 1970s and 80s. Within this seemingly innocuous name Lomax unearths a wealth of cultural indicators, the most important being the idea that from Hollywood to New York (via the Mid-West and The South), America exudes a covetable yet unobtainable glamour.

Alongside new paintings and prints, and work from her film diary series, Lomax has curated a program of dream America films, one of which will be shown each day in the gallery. Other works on show reference self-absorption, a preoccupation with surface and disguise, and how happy ever after is not a guarantee of the American Dream.
