CATHY DALEY (1955-2022)

UNTITLED 1153, 2019

Oil Pastel on Vellum

72 x 36 inches (unframed) | 79 x 43 inches (framed)

Born in 1955, Toronto, Ontario, Cathy Daley received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ontario College of Art in 1975. Her drawings have been widely exhibited across North America and Europe. Drawing from the world of high fashion, Daley’s work made with black oil pastel on white vellum is a contemporary exploration of both body politics and culturally accepted images of femininity. These iconic drawings often point to the formulas behind many stereotypes, which are built on unrealistic ideals of perfection and cultural caricatures.

Drawing on persistent cultural images inspired by ballerina tutus, the garb of fairy-tale princesses and Barbie doll couture, Cathy Daley’s work investigates childhood memories of what it means to be female in Western culture and explores cultural representation of the feminine and the body. The drawings mine contemporary vocabularies of glamour, fashion, popular culture, cartoons, street signage, Hollywood cinema, fairy tales, and mythology, to examine the iconography of the feminine as it exists in the cultural imaginary, personal memory, and fantasy.
