Trouble Juice - Snug Succour exhibition preview
Australian, contemporary artist Katie Eraser is set to showcase her highly anticipated second solo-show titled Snug Succourat Besser Space in Collingwood.
Katie’s bold and untamed works explore themes of perfection and destruction, challenging a societal obsession with an illusionary sense of perfection. The self-taught Melbourne based artists’ work has a vibrant, textural nature, one proven immensely engaging and popular over an exceptional 12 months of work. Katie was a part of two major group shows and an art-fair as well as her first (and notably) sell-out solo exhibition Perfection isn’t beautiful, Destruction is beautiful which was held at Boom Gallery, April of last year.
Following a break through 2017, Katie is set to unveil her second solo-show which features 30 major works! While the exhibition showcases a range of dynamic pieces, undoubtedly “a journey through the familiar,” it also sees Katie explore “the fresh terrain of a new media”. Snug Succour demonstrates how Katie’s distinctive practice carries across painted works and sculptured clusters, in turn, informing a new direction through larger textile pieces. Her dialogue of form and colour carries across to a “freshly simplified and deliberate use of line and texture”, the product - a clever and bold “interplay between shape, colour and line.
