Further Biographical Context for Catherine Chauloux
Catherine Chauloux was born in 1957 and was primarily influenced creatively by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and growth in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the central stresses of the previous decade. Conceptual art emerged as a key movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly powerful figures worldwide. New York maintained an important position in the international art world, ensuring that international artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene in the city. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement focused on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unchanged, fleeting states. The works focused on the interdependency of these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong interest in the European philosophy of phenomenology.
