"I make marks by drawing with my gouges on wood."

Through physical mark making, Cathy Weiss summons up a lightness of being. She infuses femaleness, spirituality and culture into her work. Ropes often tangle her view of humanity together or drop away into unseen spaces.  Her work literally and figuratively flies off walls and off pavements. Her lines are bloodlines. They reach out trying to connect us all.  Light and love are her battle cry. The ferocious gallop and the mantra 'This too shall pass' engraved into the very bones of a horse illuminate our human strength, our humanity.  An artists beacon, a life line... We shall endure, if we race towards the light...
