Meet me in the Middle – New work by Cat Rabbit, Noir & Seven Seas at the Tate

Some of Melbournes’ best loved creatives brought their wares to Sydney this week for a group show of new and collaborative pieces at the Tate. Cat Rabbit, Noir and Seven Seas made up the trifecta with a abundant array of paintings, prints, sculptures, wood carvings, plush toys, needlework and more. This is one of those shows that is insanely easy to photograph, but really hard to cull, hence the 40 images after the jump! The level of detailing and finishing on each piece is extraordinary, you can truly gaze for hours at the collection of works and find something new, some little hidden face or pattern or detail you didn’t see before. I can not speak highly enough of these three and their work, if you are in Sydney you really do have to come down and see it for yourself! The show runs till Sunday, gallery is open 12-6pm.

These individually highlighted each artists’ distinctive creative energy and insanely talented styles. Smaller works adorned the walls with vibrancy and colour at every turn.
