DESCRIPTION

‘As for the Rhinoceros...’ is the latest offering by Melbourne based artist Katrina Dobbs. It is a intimate exhibition of small-scale still-life oil paintings featuring old and weathered childrens dolls.

Painted primarily in earth tones, the works walk a fine line between traditional and contemporary, between sublime and grotesque. They are images of mankind that confront you with unblinking eyes. A countenance which transports us to the childhood realm of fragmented memory and lost innocence while reminding us that even the inanimate are subject to the ravages of time.
