“Nobody said collaborations were easy, but teaming up with someone who lives over 3400 kilometres away presents unique challenges. Tough Luck is a joint effort from Melbourne-based artist Katie Eraser and Perth-based artist Emma Lipscombe, and brings together their distinct but complementary styles. Their upcoming exhibition features a range of paintings by each artist, and also a series of limited run textiles which the pair designed together.

Katie and Emma have overcome physical distance to create a truly collaborative and unique exhibition.”Read More

This joint exhibition sees their signature works hanging alongside each other and then also combined in an exclusive collaborative textile series.”Read More
