Colour: Cathy Jack Coupland
an exhibition with the theme 'Colour Me Australia'
Timeless Textiles Gallery Newcastle
(90 Hunter St)

Opening night 6pm - 8pm Thursday 21st Jan. 2016 by Mary Brown.
Sydney based textile artist Cathy Jack Coupland demonstrates her mastery of colour in her first solo exhibition at Timeless Textiles Gallery in Newcastle.
The works in the Colour: Cathy Jack Coupland exhibition range from bold use of bright, solid colours to the subtlest interweaving of contrasting-coloured threads.
Cathy’s works are entirely covered with thousands upon thousands of stitches. These beautiful works are all free-machine-embroidered, a technique also referred to as ‘thread painting’. The resulting surface shimmers and undulates with a life all their own.
“I am thrilled to hold my first solo exhibition at Timeless Textiles in Newcastle. I want to show how important colour is to me and to my work. It’s an amazing subject to study and research and it can have a huge impact on our senses and emotions. It is inspiring and pleasurable for me and I hope, all who view it.”
