Fantastical, unsettling, surreal, dramatic – these are the impressions Cathie Pilkington RA makes on the viewer with an etching that’s similar in tone to her painted bronze sculpture.

It’s part of a suite of four prints, along with The Consolation of Nature, Unicorn, and Origami Goat. Striking and powerful are Pilkington’s darkened background and exaggerated shadow.

Pilkington graduated with an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art in 1997 and was awarded the Cheltenham Fine Art Fellowship in 1998. Her multiple award-winning work is exhibited internationally.

All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.

The Artist

Cathie Pilkington RA

Cathie Pilkington is a London-based sculptor and a figurative artist, renowned for crafting increasingly ambivalent forms. Her sculptural practice combines the interrelated and antagonistic worlds of fine art and craft. She carefully creates pieces from a vast array of materials, adopting ready-made elements, which are freely assembled, as well as incorporating modelling, carving, painting and other finishes to her works. Her sculptures often take on doll-like forms which approach the immediacy of ordinary figurative playthings, and thereby challenge the art-world’s customary and mediated relationship between the viewer and the artwork.
