I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where I currently work, Meanjin, and pay respects to Elders — past, present and emerging.
Caity Reynolds is an artist, writer and researcher practicing in Brisbane. Working across painting mediums, small sculpture and text, her work observes unstable spaces of self-portraiture and performed vulnerability while querying the social mythos and philosophical implications associated with failure. Interested in all things defamatory, gross or sad, subject matter includes, but is by no means limited to, mattress stains, stolen soaps and condiments, grazed knees, unwashed towels and buttered bread falling face forward into a years’ worth of foot traffic filth and under cabinet scrapings.
From 2016 to 2019 she was the co-director and curator of Outer Space Artist Run Initiative, she currently sits on the board. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Art in 2013 with first class honours and is completing her PhD at the Queensland College of Art. During her candidature, she has lectured and tutored in art theory and studio courses while also overseeing the Fine Art and Photography Honours program as a lecturer in Research Methodologies. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including at, MetroArts, The Brisbane Powerhouse, Crane Arts in Philadelphia and OurHouse in London.
