Catherine Evans is an Australian contemporary visual artist based in Berlin, Germany. After studying Science and Asian Studies at the Australian National University, she went on to study photography at the Victorian College of the Arts, completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2011.
Working across both photography and sculpture, Catherine’s current studio research investigates the intersection of human and geologic timescales and sites of exchange between the body and material. In her most recent artwork she has begun to excavate the very materials of photography itself – approaching light-sensitive materials sculpturally.
Catherine has exhibited widely and is the recipient of numerous competitive awards and grants, including the National Gallery of Victoria Trustees Award (2010), an ArtStart grant from the Australia Council for the Arts (2012), and the inaugural VCA Graduate Mentorship (2013) with Australian sculptor Susan Jacobs.
