cate collopy

My artwork has a strong environmental focus concerned with waste behavior and how we use and dispose of materials, which I challenge through strong personal inquiries. I move between creative media in response to both my own journey and a broader social/conceptual framework, with skill, confidence and passion that is further enriched by with the innovation of found materials, gathered stories, discarded objects and forgotten memorabilia.

I am an Australian Artist living in Brisbane, Queensland and my artworks include painting, public artwork, mixed media object and small sculpture. I am self-represented and have works sold into private collections in Australia, Canada, Japan, United Kingdom and United States.
