We are pleased to announce an exhibition I am a Cat by Emily Beasy on March 23(Sat) & 24(Sun) , as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Emily Beasy is an illustrator/exhibiting artist from Melbourne, Australia. She completed a Bachelor of Illustration at Melbourne Polytechnic in 2015, and has studied fine art at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
Emily’s practice takes focus on the gentle and the uncanny. With a strong interest in ethology, her work explores themes of animal behaviour and intelligence, the similarities and differences between our species and others, and strong-but-subtle feminist expression.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
I am a Cat features a collection of illustrations to Soseki Natsume’s classic piece of literature, rendered by Australian artist and illustrator Emily Beasy. Portrayed in a colourful mix of styles both of Japanese and Western influence, these works convey the diverse feelings, observations and reflections of a self-aware feline and his curious human subjects.
