Australian artist Claire Kurzmann creates bright, luminous work that reminds me of misspent childhood days down by the local candy store. Of her artwork, she says: ‘I’d try and draw realistic beings but they’d never work, they always looked odd. They turned out the same way each time. Then I realised that they looked actually looked half-decent in their own way.’
