[Melbourne] Wintering exhibition by Caitlin Rigby & Priscilla Amrosini
I’ve been seeing Caitlin Rigby in more and more galleries and exhibitions over this past year. To be honest I’ve seen her splashing her work around and have thought to myself ‘wow, that what reminds me of Melbourne artist SYNC if he went down a fine arts path’. Her work is stylistic and dreamy and along with Priscilla Amrosini’s work is definitely worth a visit at 696 Gallery.
“Caitlin Rigby spends most of her days sitting in a small room with a paint brush in one hand and a cup of tea in the other, so she says. Originally from Brisbane Caitlin began exhibiting in 2005, working from a studio high above the city. Her exploration eventually led her to Melbourne where she currently resides and works”. - 696 Gallery
“Still in her early twenties and without formal training Caitlin has long developed her own style, much driven by subconscious forces. Since high-school she has been drawing characters and faces, which grow and evolve in her work. The fluent line-work and subtle colours she uses have become her signature as much as the characters she draws.Caitlin’s work has been exhibited up and down the east coast of Australia and has been published on websites and magazines, including Curvy and Edition Magazine.” - 696 Gallery
