If You Can’t Be Good, Be Careful

 

Kate Kurucz, “If You Can’t Be Good, Be Careful”
9 March – 1 April 2018

“Painting is a way of understanding myself and the people around me. Painting does the things I can’t do, won’t do or am not allowed to do. If you can eat a face, you can empathise with a painting. Something sticky and hot, raw and ugly, beautiful and tender, throbs under our surface, inching closer.”

“Just like Nanna said – be good; but if you can’t be good, be careful.”

Opening Friday 9 Martch 2018, 6-9pm
