Irwin Reflections by Catherine Gordon

Catherine Gordon has been exhibiting her paintings and drawings in WA for 20 years. Now based in Albany, her current paintings are inspired by the Irwin Inlet, Denmark and its surrounds, where the landscape closes in with the half-light of dusk until the dark steals it away.

Her work is held by Artbank, Curtin University, Grove Securities,  Holmes’ a Court Collection, Perth College, Royal Perth Hospital Collection,  and the University of Western Australia.

Gallery East, North Fremantle, 1 - 24th July.


  1. Wow, she is just getting better and better that girl.

  2. "rooia weed" is quite haunting isnt it?

  3. Yes, I'm not sure how to spell rooia but that is how it sounds anyway. It is the seagrass that looks like couch grass in the shallows at Irwins inlet. We get it in the nets a lot.
    I think the Irwins Reflections is haunting, with those ghostly paperbarks doing their crazy dance.
