Kathrin Longhurst at Catherine Asquith Gallery Melbourne

Kathrin grew up in East Germany. The first art she saw was social realist propaganda. In her latest exhibition at the Catherine Asquith gallery in Melbourne she takes a nostalgic look back from her new homeland of Australia to deal with the paradox of a generation of liberated eastern bloc women.

With a mixture of satire, romance and sensuality she engages the viewer in a surrealistic, heart stopping journey.

It is heartening to see a young painter powerfully expressing her own original vision with this collection of very well-crafted works.

The exhibition, you should not miss, runs from the 3rd to the 21st July 2012 at 48 Oxford Street Collingwood.
