About

CAT CATALYST is a London born artist, designer, author, book-artist, spoken word performer, writer, curator and advocate for the Earth, with a particular interest in the redemptive potential of art, installation and the spoken word to activate / elevate / accelerate human consciousness. 

Cat’s new book: Now is the New Now: ‘iPoem’s Blog is an epistolary novel comprised of modern verse, featuring a combination of interwoven real and fictional auto-ethnographic memories that serve as a methodology for thought-optimisation, and as an infrastructure to challenge binary-thinking. Thus attempting to assist with the removal of the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence. The Revised Second Edition is scheduled for release mid October 2021.

Cat’s previous Artist’s Book entitled: ‘Sequence’ (2018 and 2019) was produced in response to a brief set by visiting lecturer and founder of the Artist’s Book Collective ‘AM Bruno’, Sophie Loss, for the then MA Book Arts course @ UAL: Camberwell College of Arts, formerly run by Book Artist Susan Johanknecht.

Sequence’ was exhibited as a series of installations @ The Camberwell Summer Show (2018 and 2019) and also @ the MA Select Show (2019) in The Camberwell Space Gallery.

Sequence’ was acquired by the Special Collections of Artist’s Books at The Wellcome Library (Perfect bound), The British Library (hardcover), The Women’s Art Library (saddlestitch) and The PAGES travelling Artist’s Book Collective, (perfect bound), housed at the Tetley Arts Centre in Leeds. The Wellcome Library also acquired Cat’s MA research paper.

Apotheosis (2021) was produced as a limited edition print run in response to a brief set by the Royal College of Art and was part of their Research Biennale 2021 live stream.

Cat has previously written occasional articles for the British Library’s ‘Artists Books Now’ events and has published in The Blue Notebook and the Book Arts News Letter. Cat is also an exhibiting artist and an esoteric poet. Previous works have been featured at Late at TateThe London Eye and  Art on the London Underground at Baker Street Tube.

Cat inherited the surname of ‘Catalyst’ back in the early 1990’s whilst organising a series of Arts and Wellbeing events (named Catalyst events) in London – UK and also in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia. The purpose of these events was to raise an awareness of environmental issues through the creative use of recycled materials and to promote a sense of communal cohesion, whilst providing the artists and designers with a platform for their work, which Cat has been doing on and off ever-since. 

The dictionary definition of a ‘Catalyst’ is: ‘an agent of change and transformation which does not become changed in the process’, thus enabling the retainment of one’s authenticity in order to serve as a conduit for universal truth, while staying true to the muse of inspiration.
