We have been huge fans of Visual artist Kate Rohde for years now (see here) and we are more than excited to see her new show Ornament Crimes opening tonight at Pieces of Eight Gallery as part of this year's L'oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
If there is anyone who can examine the nature of excess and the corrupting influence of decoration it is Rohde. She has bewitched, bothered and bewildered us with he dazzling tableau of mystical and mythical creatures in the past (think Marie Antoinette on acid).
To think now we can wear a bit of that magic, perhaps these chunks of colour could be a magic power key into her kaleidoscopic world. RAMONA
Ornament Crimes runs until April 18 (good grief this year is flying!)
