About Caterina Leone

Caterina Leone is a Melbourne-based artist revitalising the historic drawing technique of silverpoint to create intimate self-portraits that question societal notions of gender. She inserts herself into the religious, mythological and art historical iconographies that have fascinated her since childhood, and which, due to her biological sex, hold conflicting connotations of exclusion and reverence. By recreating this imagery in her own image, in disregard of sex and the gender binary, she removes the barriers to her inclusion. In doing so, the artist is able to explore her identity and how it has been shaped by patriarchal, societal ideas of femininity. Her combination of silverpoint – a largely forgotten, pre-graphite way of drawing with precious metals such as silver – with contemporary mediums like spray paint, is a means of exploring this inner conflict in her choice of materials as well as subject matter.

Born in Sydney, she studied at the National Art School and worked in arts administration, writing and curating before moving to Melbourne in 2017 to pursue her own art practice. Caterina’s interest in art began in childhood, inspired by her artist and designer grandfather, whose artistic ability helped him survive POW camps in Germany during WWII and who studied under Communist rule in Ukraine. Consequently her conception of art is defined by a belief that it must attempt to transform, redeem and challenge the self and society.

Her work has been featured in online and print publications, most recently in Synaesthesia Magazine in April 2018. She was the guest editor of The Journal of Australian Ceramics for the July 2014 edition, and she continues to have articles and reviews published in a range of newspapers and magazines. Caterina has been included in numerous group exhibitions and juried art shows in both NSW and Victoria, with a solo exhibition in January 2018 followed in September by inclusion in The Way We See Ourselves, a group exhibition at West End Art Space that was selected for the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival. Her most recent solo exhibition was held at Rubicon ARI in June 2019, after which she showed alongside Lily Mae Martin at Scott Livesey Gallery and in January 2020, with forty other Australian artists in Antipodes 2020 at BeinArt Gallery, which was covered by The Age.

In December 2019, Caterina undertook a month-long residency in Finland. The work begun at this residency will be shown at Tinning St Presents later in 2020. Another solo exhibition will be held in August of this year at Stockroom Gallery.

Online Art Sale

As a creative, physical medium, art often finds it challenging to adapt. We think this is fairly ironic as art can also be fluid and open to interpretation. Why then, should the showcase of physical art, be restricted to physical galleries?

The artworld is typically a small and secluded one that doesn’t get much attention from the world of technology. We wanted to change that by merging both technology and art to create a virtual gallery and online art sale platform. It is because of its secluded nature that artists find it so hard to break through and get involved and we want to do something about that. Founders Nancy Donaldson and Jarrod Knight started out with a shared goal. To create an easily accessible place for people to see, buy, learn about, and sell art online. Art Lovers Australia has become everything that envisioned and more but most importantly, it’s a community that anyone can be a part of.

How Do I Choose from All the Amazing Art For Sale Online?

When you’re spoilt for choice, choosing your next work of art isn’t easy. Art has the ability to make you feel a range of emotions so you need to first consider the tone you want to set for the space your art will go in. Something relaxing in the living area, something playful where you host guests and something sensual for the bedroom. You don’t want the wrong artwork in the wrong room as it will throw off the mood in that particular area. Another key thing to consider when browsing all the amazing art for sale online is your budget. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you’ve fallen head over heels for artwork that’s out of your price range. Instead of showing you art that is outside of your budget, we allow you to filter your search by price, size, colour, and even medium so you find exactly what you’re looking for when you shop for art online. While you might have an idea of the type of art you’re looking for, it’s important to keep an open mind. Instead of only looking at oil paintings for sale, try not to be so narrow in your search. Broaden it a little bit and you might be surprised by what catches your eye. It could be a photograph that steals your heart in the end.
