The Fellows and the Blondies is Kate McCarthy’s new exhibition. McCarthy uses childhood memories and child-like spontaneity to create her painterly painted pieces. She mentions the 1970s series of Sesame Street among her influences.

Her work reminds me of boiled lollies and patchwork quilts. Kate’s next solo show opens on September 17 at 19Karen Gallery in the Gold Coast.
