Inside Out (Australia)

Katie Eraser



How would you describe your art? The first thing that will strike you when you view my artworks are the colours (bright and unflinchin­g), then the marks (robust and unapologet­ic). The forms, while abstract, can be challengin­g and cryptic in their expression. My paintings aren’t afraid to be loud and take up space. What do you love

most about painting? There’s a freedom in painting that I don’t experience in other spaces. I’m impatient, so acrylic paint works perfectly for its quick-dry capabiliti­es. The final step in all my work is done with an oil stick: thick, textured and spreads like butter – so satisfying. What inspires you? I’m more motivated and productive when I move between different contexts. I find that ideas and emotions never run dry if I do this. I’ve just finished my Masters of Therapeuti­c Arts Practice, I work as a graphic designer, and I mentor queer young people, all avenues that inform and enhance my work. Do you take

commission­s? Sure do! What price range

do you work in? Between $800 and $4000.

Where can we buy your art? Michael Reid Studio Direct in Sydney, Studio Gallery in Melbourne, Art Images Gallery in Adelaide. katieerase­; @katie.eraser
