For Narrm-based contemporary artist Katie Eraser, emotion is at the core of how art conveys our experience of being in the world. Her work is strewn with embodied expressions of lust, loss, and longing, which speaks to her lived experience, and queer ideology. An ongoing interest across her practice is examining her perception that art connects us to ourselves, and others, because it puts within reach emotional revelations that would otherwise be overlooked. Her works pulsate with intuitive mark making and blind sketching propelled by instinct to distill a deep tension within. Eraser holds a Masters in Therapeutic Arts Practice from MIECAT Institute and a Bachelor of Design from Billy Blue College of Design. Since 2017 she has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions. Eraser was awarded the Fortyfive Downstairs Emerging Artist Award in 2018.
