Katherine Edney
The In-between

Opening Tuesday 20 May 6-8pm
17 May – 11 June 2014

Narrative is intrinsic to Katherine Edney’s work. Her beautiful yet uncompromising and rigorous realist paintings not only capture a moment in time, but also allude to what might have occurred, or what might be about to occur

In-between continues to explore this idea, with narratives focusing on notions of uncertainty, change & mortality

The narratives she is drawn to explore not only her own viewpoints or emotions towards a particular event, but also the viewpoints of others close to her. What further intensifies the moodiness of these paintings is that many of them were born out of her time spent travelling through the NSW desert. While there she was able to dwell on significant events in her life, often involving her family, in a landscape altogether foreign to the one in which these events were taking place

Since graduating with an MFA from COFA in 2008, Katherine has been including in numerous art prizes including Black Swan Prize for Portraiture, The Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, Portia Geach Memorial Art Award, Metro Art Award, Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and the National Graduate Show ‘Hatched’ at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art
