Katrina Read Gallery23 Nov 2017
Katrina Read, the artist and brains behind popular stationery brand, Arty Hearts has opened a pop-up gallery in Chatswood Chase; The Katrina Read Gallery.
The gallery will feature some of Katrina’s most prestigious art work, including The Prosperity Collection which has been collected by international banks and hotels, and hangs in many high profile private homes both in Australia and overseas.
Katrina’s Prosperity Collection artwork draws upon a traditional style of painting Koi fish but places them in a very contemporary setting, fitting for the modern market. The fine art collection aims to capture the viewer and take them on an emotional experience of calm and inner peace. When on a wall with external light, the paintings take on a three-dimensional effect with various light plays and perspective enabling the viewer to feel like they are looking down upon a koi pond as you would in real life.
Katrina says, “I wanted to bring a number of signature pieces from The Prosperity Collection to Australia that I have been showing for many years overseas. I also wanted to use the space as an opportunity to showcase a wider variety of my work which is very interior design led including watercolours, beach style paintings and a new botanicals series just in time for Christmas and Chinese New Year.”
Katrina works with top interior designers both in Australia and overseas to create bespoke pieces to suit individual locations. The Katrina Read Gallery provides the perfect opportunity for consumers to view her wide variety of art work in one place as well as to meet Katrina herself!
Katrina Read Gallery is now open on Level One (next to Oroton).
