Additional Information

Corroded Head after James Gleeson by Cathy Gilday – Challenged to do an “Appropriation,” of a famous artist’s work, I knew my choice would have to come from my most favourite Australian surrealist artist – James Gleeson. 1915 – 2008. The piece was titled ” We inhabit the corrosive littoral of habit,” 1940. I made some changes, only using the corroded head and the woman’s figure, then setting them into my own landscape, with a pathway which lead to a door, a reminder that in life, there are always other paths we can take. In the original, there was a woman’s figure which I chose to include, with corrosions to identify with my own body and how my passed illness had affected me. Making this painting so personal, was not an easy decision, but once made, was very liberating.
The message behind the original painting was that often, habit, stands in our way and does not allow us to be instinctive or experience new adventures, therefore habit is corrosive.
