Cat Poljski

My work explores the constructed world in an attempt to move between the real and the imagined. The individual works are spatial experiments, reconstructed, referenced and cross-referenced to provide abstracted viewpoints to question notions of place and time.

Images of buildings from Melbourne’s CBD are collated and hand- printed together from four different copper plates that have been etched, aquatinted and relief printed, overlaying each other to construct a dialogue between the constructed and imagined world. They are an attempt to locate sites where buildings can speak about our past, present and maybe our future. How we morph together images from our lives to invent and designate layers of memory and fact, upon which the imagined and real are combined to create a more appealing reality.

Amongst this grandeur of architecture are the skyscrapers. These have taken my attention; a blend of steel structures and modernist style buildings that are not as tall as say Manhattan or Melbourne, but their presence commands my attention. I am surrounded and indulged by this. My head is going crazy as I swivel and swerve in all directions to find yet another pocket of glory above me. The central station is like a Sol LeWitt structure, pure white and built of strong horizontals and verticals. This city is known as the international city of Peace and Justice, and I really get a sense of it. The streets seem safe and the atmosphere is gentle and serene.
