Multidisciplinary Artist, Freelance Knitter


Cat Brierley

Job Title: 





Cat Brierley is a multidisciplinary artist and freelance knitwear designer based in Sheffield, UK. Cat's work explores the breakdown of their parental relationships and the internalised idea that they were a ‘difficult’ and ‘inconvenient’ child alongside themes of control, intimacy, and shame through creating physical spaces for their intrusive thoughts and memories to live externally to their own body. Back in their ancestral home of South Yorkshire, but distanced from the community they were raised in, Cat is able to look at their disconnected, angry, frustrated, and sometimes funny experiences through a new lens of queerness and gender nonconformity. Utilising acrylic paint, glitter-glue, felt-tips, gel-pens, stickers, and naive mark making they purposefully reflect the low-culture techniques and motifs of their own work produced as a child which they state as their biggest visual inspiration.
