Evi O Harnesses Colour As Her Superpower!

Art

Saint Cloche gallerist Kitty Clark describes artist Evi O as possessing a special quality, where ‘colour is her “super power”’.

After working together on one of Saint Cloche’s first ever exhibitions, it’s only fitting that Kitty’s trailblazing Sydney gallery will make their debut at Sydney Contemporary art fair with Evi O’s latest exhibition, Fantasia!

30th August, 2019

Evi O was one of the first artists gallery founder Kitty Clark ever showed at Saint Cloche, and the relationship has clearly gone from strength to strength. Kitty explains ‘championing emerging artists and connecting them with new collectors is important to me, as I believe that we cannot have a thriving art scene if we do not invest in emerging artists.’

Evi’s work is distinctive for its use of vivid, eye-catching colour. Her work depicts semi-abstracted shapes, often inspired by natural forms, animals and plants. In Fantasia, Evi continues to explore these vibrant forms, synthesising a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern into one diverse, uplifting body of work.

The exhibition will be opened with a special panel discussion on the topic ‘Colour is my superpower’ hosted by Tim Ross, and featuring a stellar line-up of panelists – veered fashion designer Linda Jackson AO, iconic artist Ken Done, next-level crafter Rachel Burke, influencer Taline Gabriel and interior designer Yasmine Ghoniem.

To get your head in the zone, pop on Evi’s Spotify playlist for full immersion into her colourful world!
