Eloise Cato is an Australian artist who has recently joined the Contemporary art scene. Cato's practice examines the notion of natural disasters as natural abstractions. In a broad sense the cannons of association, duality, materilaity, sensationalism, art and language. Using the associations of relevant conceptualised entities to create hyper-real pastiches.
As such, Cato is reliant upon the combination of oppositional mediums to create a uniquely minimal yet dramatic aesthetic. With raw materials dirrectly sourced from bush lands in regional NSW and contrarily, plastic manufaturing factories to cataclysmically extrude 'metaphysical paintings’ in her studio in Sydney.
