Cathy Wilkes' work is characterised by the creation of a slowly emerging personal vocabulary of sculptures and paintings that the artist makes and re-makes in evolving assemblages and environments. Her processes are measured and refined, and draw on the most intimate of personal experiences to create a compelling autobiographical thread coupled with a precise and liberated formal language.

A Sony television, a Maclaren baby buggy, a jar of BonneMaman apricot preserve for example, all appear in her installations as a catalogue of readymades. The installations
"are in a state of perpetual change in which repetition relates more to the biological rather than to the industrial... Central to the feminine sphere is the notion of invisible labour, present in all aspects of everyday life yet kept outside of the systems of material and symbolic gratification."
