New work by Kareena Zerefos.

I'm delighted to tell you that Kareena Zerefos is having another solo exhibition - this time in Melbourne. It's opening this Thursday evening (13.11.2008) at the Famous When Dead gallery, West Melbourne. The exhibition flyer describes Kareena's work very succinctly as "illustrative work exploring themes of isolation and escapism through the depiction of children and their imagination".

"French Kitty" by Kareena Zerefos.

We really enjoyed Kareena's last solo exhibition at the MTV Gallery in East Sydney back in June, and so it seems did everyone else - the opening night was packed! Her illustrative works were beautiful - so delicate & quiet... Kareena is obviously careful not to overwork her drawings, in keeping with the often fragile children & animal subjects.

The "French Kitty" illustration pictured above was a commissioned work, so not part of the upcoming exhibition - but I couldn't resist including it the post. My kitty was patched up yet again by the vet this afternoon. He should really choose his friends more carefully...
