Veronica Cay, ‘reflections from the rabbit hole’ 2018. Oil on canvas, 120 x 90cm. Courtesy: the artist and Anthea Polson Art, Main Beach

Although Cay's paintings, drawings and ceramic sculptures transmute intensely personal substance and experience, she intends them as vehicles to encourage reflection on the human condition. The symbolism is therefore oblique and indirect. Behind the visible appearance of things lurks its caricature. In several paintings there appear figures truncated at the waist and duplicated as if reflected in a murky pond. An avid collector of vintage toys, it was a folkloric, Topsy-Turvy doll that inspired Cay's rendition of inverted reality.
