WA Now – Eveline Kotai: Breathing Pattern

Exhibition and Shows

17 Aug 2019 to 10 Feb 2020

Over the past 15 years, Eveline Kotai’s interest in material dissolution and regeneration has culminated in the practice and process of cutting up and reworking her own paintings into new works.

Her unique technique of reconfiguring pre-existing works into new compositions via invisible thread and onto new surfaces, echoes a world in perpetual motion, transition and continuation.

This method provides Kotai with, not only a never-ending source of new beginnings but also an important meditative practice, a kind of breathing pattern through the action of cutting and stitching her canvasses anew.

The exhibition will include new and recent work with the variety of media including canvas reconstructions and paintings.

WA Now – Eveline Kotai: Breathing Pattern forms part of the WA Now series dedicated to showcasing work by Western Australian artists. To complement the exhibition, Art Gallery of Western Australia is hosting a series of events including a free artist talk on Saturday 14 September.
