This weeks must see is Neural Housekeeping by Sydney and london based illustrator Kate Banazi. We love her use of the contrast colour overpull and mid century scientific photographs to create space race propaganda-esque artwork. And we love that they are actually hand printed, not that we have anything against a digital print, it's just nice to see someone still getting busy with a squeegee. We like even better that she's got her show on at Lamington Drive until the 15th august... which means it's local enough that we might still make it in person instead of stalking the catalogue online.
Other reasons we like Ms Banazie besides her excellent aesthetic: scottish husband, beautiful son, gorgeous website with a big cartel shop where you can buy limited edition prints, amusing blog with witty title, and probably most important she's a self confessed lover of yorkshire pud.
89 George Street Fitzroy
