Studio A artist Katrina Brennan and Paula do Prado will create an installation inviting the audience to glimpse what happens when their creative worlds collide. Both Katrina and Paula share a love of bright colours, patterns and textures that shine through in their work as well as in their own unique sense of fashion and style. Their professional collaboration is anchored in their shared exploration of ever-evolving hybrid forms and use of repetitive making techniques such as braiding, french knitting, stitching, mark making (Katrina) and crochet, beading and stitching (Paula). The project space will be turned into a visual wonderland of colour, pattern and texture filled with Unicorn Dogs, Unicorn Butterflies, Upside Down Rainbow wearables and a drawing installation featuring Chewy from Kandos.
Paula do Prado and Katrina Brennan’s creative partnership began when Paula joined Studio A as a Guest Artist in 2019. The pair have worked together with support from Studio A Art Facilitator Florence Araniego in the studio and also worked through the covid lockdown by sending each other creative care packages and meeting regularly over zoom. Before they begin any kind of creative work, Paula and Katrina love to first catch up on family (Katrina is a proud aunty to three little ones and Paula has an 8 year old son) and coffee, they both love coffee.
