Midnight in Paris

recent work by Kate Piekutowski

About

Midnight in Paris is an exhibition that responds to Kate’s personal experiences, memories and travels in France. Through the historic medium of etching, the imagery reflects on the marriage between identity and place, creating a somewhat homage to the decadent history of Europe. Drawing back to her Polish ancestry and background, the imagery continues to evoke an emotional post-war dystopia whilst exploring castles of the Loire Valley, sunflower fields in the south of France and Parisian stylization. Motifs have greatly influenced this exhibition and folk motifs including the peacock, folk dance, shoes, painting and flowers are evident. Tasmanian flora has also become a new element within the work and acts as a link between the past and a way of linking two homelands together.
