Art on Display

So far, ColourSpace has helped over a dozen businesses in Melbourne become more conscious about the impact of art at work. Now, we’re doing the same in Sydney.

PEXA (Property Exchange Australia) is Australia’s online property exchange network and their exhibiting artwork from ColourSpace with a commitment of feeling good, looking good and doing good with art.

Art is more than a decoration. We believe in the power of art to enrich, engage and inspire. We’re thrilled to welcome Pexa onboard as our very first exhibitor in Sydney. This gallery features Sydney based artist Catherine Lee.

Catherine Lee

Catherine Lee is an internationally exhibited fine artist, with a Bachelor (Honours) Degree of Fine Art and Painting, History of Art at University of Brighton, UK and BTEC Diploma in Fine Art and Design, from Hastings College of Art.

Lee grew up in Spain, studied in the UK and is a practicing artist living in Sydney, Australia. She focuses on abstract and figurative painting and drawing, expressive mark making and vibrant colour palette using oil, acrylic, ink and spray paints.

She recently exhibited in New York City at the Anti-Art Fair for Independent Artists, and has upcoming exhibitions at Art Paris, France and Art Miami, USA.

Communication In Our Nature, 100 x 100, Acrylic on Canvas

This painting started as a live painting performance at National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Sydney, and was finished as a live painting performance at Art on the Streets at Bondi Beach. Lee began by drawing multiple figures on top of each other, layering with different paints and turning the canvas as she worked, creating a more abstract appearance detracted from the initial figures. If you look closely, those figures are still slightly visible.

Before our art installation, PEXA’s walls were blank. With new art, the walls now offer a medium encouraging new thought, creativity and conversation at work.

The One That Got Away, 77 x 72, Acrylic on Canvas

This painting was inspired by listening to music and creating a vibrant energetic feeling with bright colours that blend into each other. Lee wanted to abstract this painting and use expressive marks to get lost inside the painting and open the mind.

Exquisite Sound 61h x 153 w, Acrylic on canvas

This painting was developed by creating multiple layers of paint, each with a slightly different style and becoming more abstracted as Lee worked. In this piece, she used a combination of paintbrushes and short plastic sheets to apply the paint and create vibrant colour patterns.
