I acknowledge the Bundjalung, Gumbaynggirr and Yaegl peoples, the traditional custodians of the stolen land where I currently live and work, and pay respects to Elders — past, present and emerging.
Caity Reynolds is an artist, writer and researcher based on Bundjalung land in Northern New South Wales. After completing her Bachelor of Fine Art (honours) in 2013 at the Queensland College of Art she co-founded Outer Space Contemporary Art in Brisbane and was co-director from 2016 - 2019. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including at MetroArts, The Brisbane Powerhouse, CraneArts in Philadelphia and OurHouse in London.
Working across painting mediums, small sculpture and text, she is currently examining the socio-political and economic systems that are used to alienate and oppress. More broadly, Her practice explores class structures through depictions of seemingly humiliating, mournful or anxious experiences by utilising humour, play, satire and confession. By observing unstable spaces of self-portraiture and performed vulnerability she aims to query the mythos and philosophical implications associated with failure and class. Subject matter includes, but is by no means limited to, mattress stains, failed relationships, grazed knees, unpaid bills and unwashed towels.
She currently works as the Exhibitions and Collections Officer for the Regional Gallery in Grafton, New South Wales.
