One of our favourite Australian galleries, Saint Cloche, is celebrating another massive year with a final group show, Paradiso.

In keeping with the Paddington gallery’s overriding mission, this show brings together the work of a diverse group of established and emerging artists across the mediums of ceramics, sculpture and painting.

Every year since the Paddington gallery’s opening, Saint Cloche has presented a grand finale group show.

This year’s exhibition, Paradiso, has been curated by Saint Cloche founder Kitty Clark (have a look at our video feature with her back in August!) to ‘create dialogue, and promote and celebrate the diverse, creative talents of artists that have been handpicked to illuminate the curatorial concept.’ There’s a whole of Australian talent in this show, as well as two international emerging artists, Daniel Barreto from Mexico, and Yusuke Abe from Japan.

Kitty asked the participating artists to take a creative leap into the hidden paradise of their dreams. ‘We invited them to be inspired by their own memories and dream sequences to form a contemporary narrative and to imagine a better world – the fuel needed to enable all great invention, change or innovation in life – to forge a pathway to a multi-dimensional utopian existence for our future,’ she says.

This month-long exhibition marks the end of Saint Cloche’s 2019 exhibition schedule after another exciting and transformative year.
