Eye catching exhibition FLUORESCENT colours tend to catch the eye, which is why an exhibition running in Frankston has been turning heads. Artist Kate Rohde (pictured left) has prepared an exhibition of works made using bright and fluorescent colours. She says that she is drawn to that style because “they are ultimately the most unnatural colours too, so it suits the fantastical, unreal worlds I’m trying to create.” The exhibition, titled Creature Comforts, is running at Frankston Arts Centre’s Cube 37 until 2 July. “I hope the audience will enjoy the intensity of the colour. The colours I use have a sort of happy, upbeat feeling so I hope people come away from seeing the show feeling a sense of positivity,” Rohde said. “I’m really inspired by historical decorative arts and make contemporary decorative arts, furniture and prints which draw on my love of Baroque, Rococo and Art Nouveau. I like how both of these movements use flowing, organic line and form, as well as motifs inspired by nature. “Much of my work incorporates animal elements like hooves, antlers and graphic stripes and spots. The idea behind Creature Comforts is how we like to surround ourselves with nature in our homes to bring a sense of peace and relaxation.” Picture: Supplied
