Nobody said collaborations were easy, but teaming up with someone who lives over 3400 kilometres away presents unique challenges. Tough Luck is a joint effort from Melbourne-based artist Katie Eraser and Perth-based artist Emma Lipscombe, and brings together their distinct but complementary styles. Their upcoming exhibition features a range of paintings by each artist, and also a series of limited run textiles which the pair designed together. The exhibition is a great example of the way which social media platforms like Instagram can bring together likeminded artists and help foster creative relationships and friendships. Katie and Emma have overcome physical distance to create a truly collaborative and unique exhibition.Read More
