Social agenda's highlighted at Lee's unfiltered exhibition
Art is defined as an expression or application of human creative skill and imagination in such forms as painting and sculpture. It can be as diverse as the person who created it and appreciated by those who view it.
From Friday 1st March through to Sunday 10th March 2019, artist Catherine Lee is exhibiting her solo show titled "Exposed & Unfiltered" at Gallery 371, Marrickville. Whether you attend the private view opening night from 6 .00 to 10.00pm on Friday 1st March or make a visit throughout the exhibition, you will have no doubt in Catherine's creative talents and expressions as she is known for her creative, yet provocative paintings and artwork that push the boundaries of social acceptance and taboo art.

This exhibition highlights the mental health difficulties and behaviours surrounding social media and how people's perceptions are influenced by these platforms, becoming desensitised to the content they promote. Through media, our desire for perfection and beauty influences our false reality on who we really are, with double standards for self-gratification and idealisation set by a society on what is acceptable.
Using oil, inks and acrylic paint as her mediums, her work brings an engaging energy to each piece. The exhibition also highlights how our perceptions change when an image is produced as a painting compared to a photograph.
Gallery 371 is situated at 371 Enmore Road Marrickville. This exhibition will be open from Wednesday to Sunday 10.00 am to 6.00pm with Monday and Tuesday by appointment only. The event is free, however, you need to register through Eventbrite. For more information on Catherine's work, please visit your website.
