‘These new works brightly climb out of the depths of isolation, and render a new day rising.’ – Katie Eraser.

After ‘a joyously prolific 12 months’ including participating in various exhibitions and an art-fair, young Melbourne artist  is set to open her second solo show, ‘Snug Succour’ next week. A year of happy vibes have certainly translated into this vibrant showcase of 30 new works.

This collection is a result of a journey into fresh terrain and experiments with new media for Katie – think large-scale paintings alongside clusters of sculptures, and intriguing textile works. ‘My practice has developed into new mediums, specifically textile works,’ the artist tells. ‘Creating a space filled with opposing textures and variances, both soft and hard, replays my key focus on emotions intersecting with an environment.’

In a response to such weighty and widespread issues as seclusion and ostracism, Katie’s art seeks to bring comfort. ‘These new works brightly climb out of the depths of isolation, and render a new day rising, under the guise of radiant expressions of abstraction,’ she adds.

If you were a little curious about the peculiar title, all becomes clear in Katie’s questioning contention: ‘If we each aspire to feel safety, security and comfort (Snug) in and outside of our darkest moments, and recognise this as a human need we should all be afforded, maybe we can find more time to support, care and aid (Succour) each other.’
