The capacity for fearlessness of the creative facility is always something astonishing.
Joseph Chilton Pearce, the human development specialist, felt that in order to be creative, to live a creative life, the fear of being wrong must be lost.
It was a concept almost immediately recognized by the art community as a truism.
That makes creativity a very personal endeavor though, as it requires being original, and revealing yourself.
This amplifies praise or critique, god forbid you should get it wrong. But as replication favors mediocrity, so does fortune favor the brave.
Catherine Nelson is the latter, and her creativity has been on the receiving end of critical compliments for a while.
Educated in painting at the College Of Fine Arts in Sydney, she has been known prior in the photographic community for her suspended 360 degree ‘globes,’ and prior to that had her talents exercised in set creation for films such as Moulin Rouge, 300, and Harry Potter: The Prisoner Of Askaban.
That’s quite the caché.
