Shotgun 8: dark maria

ELOISE KIRK

Shotgun is an awarded opportunity that supports the advancement of selected Tasmanian artist/s through a customised and intensive program of high-level industry access, production assistance and critical engagement. Shotgun 8 artist Eloise Kirk presents work developed through the program.

Through the use of erasure, fragmentation and collage Kirk constructs a sequence of symbolic arrangements. The artist collects, divides and then reassemble images and materials, pitting the precious against the precarious. The work is explicitly elemental, offering an aesthetic response to the interval between beauty and disaster, straddling the periphery of the romantic and the surreal. Opening: 6pm, Friday 27 September 2019 // Exhibition: 28 September - 27 October 2019 // Location: Contemporary Art Tasmanian // A FREE EVENT
