Liverpool Street Gallery is now representing Sydney-based painter Eliza Gosse.
Gosse utilises her background in design to examine the nature of Australian domesticity. Depicting pared down scenes of sentimental post-war suburbia, the artist looks to historical architecture to assess contemporary views of the past and how they were expressed through the built environment.
Often these buildings have been demolished in the process of gentrification and therefore Gosse’s images can partially be read as a social critique, turning away from today’s growing economic inequalities. Her practice utilises colour-blocking and reduced geometric forms to canonise Australia’s lost architecture.
Completing her Master of Fine Art at the National Art School in Sydney in 2019, Gosse’s work has already made waves in commercial spaces around Australia, with group outings at Liverpool Street, Edwina Corlette, Hugo Michell, MARS, May Space and China Heights. Her work has been included in several prominent art fairs, including Sydney Contemporary, the London Art Fair and the Auckland Art Fair. Gosse is also represented by Brisbane’s Edwina Corlette Gallery.
Her first exhibition at Liverpool Street will be held in November 2020.
