2011 Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Travel Scholarship - Finalists Exhibition
I'm one of five finalists in the Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Travel Scholarship. Our work is being exhibited at Sydney College of the Arts Galleries, 8 - 23 September 2011.
The scholarship celebrates a bequest of the late Renee Fauvette Erdos in memory of her mother Fauvette Loureiro, the eldest daughter of artist Arthur Loureiro. Recent Sydney College of the Arts graduates can apply for a scholarship of $28,000 to further their visual arts practice and professional development in international environment.

I'm an artist based in Sydney, Australia. My practice explores how our senses connect us to our surroundings, engaging with the immediacy of present time experience and the impermanence of existence. Working with tactile materials and embodied entanglements with place, my sculptural installations grow from a process of quiet observation to reflect on instability and fragility. By developing attentive focus and working with found, natural or everyday materials, I link sensate experiences of materiality and haptic thinking to evoke direct empathetic and palpable experiences of time, fluctuation and change. www.kathfries.com
