Artist Talk with Kate Rohde


Free Entry


Ararat Gallery TAMA



Join us for an artist talk presented by Kate Rohde on Saturday 3 July at 2pm!

Melbourne-based artist Kate Rohde makes highly ornate sculptural objects, taking inspiration from Rococo and Baroque decorative art, science, zoomorphism and the Wunderkammer (cabinet of curiosity). Kate’s process is complex and time-consuming, starting with hand-building forms in clay or plasticine, then creating moulds and casting resin pieces, before sanding and polishing them using power tools in a labour-intensive process that produces spectacular results.

This public program is presented as part of Obsessed: Compelled to make, an exhibition that showcases the awe-inspiring creativity and innovation of makers from across Australia and examines the fundamental human need to make.

Obsessed: Compelled to make has been assisted by the Federal Government’s Visions of Australia program, supporting participation in, and access to, Australia’s art and culture. The Australian Design Centre receives funding from the NSW Government, through Arts NSW and the Federal Government through the Australia Council. The organisation is also assisted by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.
