Flinders Street Gallery - Juz Kitson







Where do I start... These works are so beautiful, fragile, sensual and grotesque at the same time... Southern Ice Porcelain a magnificent stark white clay that attains its translucency is the star attraction... Delicate furls of clay finely attached by the most nimble of fingers... Animal hair, wax, lace, flocking, glass, cotton, bone, resin and ink make up these amazing pieces that are quite beyond description...

A graduate of the National Art School Juz has produced a gobsmackingly almost shocking exhibition... Pieces to entice you and pieces to revolt you, of almost slightly altered internal body parts and flora...

Just loved ‘Skull’, ‘Silence as a virtue’, ‘It’s beautiful and deadly up there, you would hate it’ and
found myself a little scared of ‘The Calves are being weened from their mothers’...

Seeing is believing and this is a MUST SEE show...
