Cathy Abraham b. 1968 in Cape Town, South Africa where she currently lives and works. She specialised in process-based art at the Michaelis School of Fine Arts, University of Cape Town (UCT), where she graduated with an MFA (with Distinction) in 2018. Abraham’s creative work brings together seemingly disparate entities through participation and a ritual based practice. She continues to study under the guidance of artists Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky, participating in regular workshops. She works in film, mixed media, installation, painting and sculpture though her choice of media is primarily informed by her subject matter. In 2018, Abraham’s MFA culminated in a solo exhibition titled, A Deeper Kind of Nothing.
