Paulene Cattle

Paulene’s work is inspired by the urban built environment, drawing attention to the overlooked minutiae of the city, highlighting the background noise of society.
Current work concentrates on the surfaces underfoot and the evidence and effects of traffic and the elements.
Also ongoing is the practice of textile graffiti – embroidering around street furniture and other encountered objects. Close up photographs highlight previously unnoticed details and create a permanent record of this ephemeral art form.


TEXTILE PRACTICE
Paulene’s practice utilises a wide variety of media including handmade felt, collage, stitch, found objects, photography, installation, various printmaking processes and time-based media. Materials and processes are chosen to reflect the concept of the artworks, often incorporating site specific objects and materials.
