Lives and works in Brussels, Belgium

Artist statement

Although Cathy Coëz's work has been devoted to drawing, she first encountered the medium of ceramic in 2007. Ceramic has ever since given the artist an opportunity to explore new possibilities of representation. It has provided a means to re-examine and reassess the artist's ongoing concerns on the role and nature of the work of art as an artefact.
