Between 8th August - 8th September Eveline Kotai will be bringing 20 of her newest works to Sydney. The 'Infinite Threads' exhibition at the Conny Dietzschold Gallery will be a chance to see these works, and even own one for your own home.

Eveline Kotai has been active over the past 30 years. Inspired by patterns in nature, her works are unique and interesting. She has won awards throughout her career, and her works are in collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Parliament House in Canberra, and the Art Gallery of Western Australia. She is based in Perth, and Infinite Threads will be her second major exhibition in Sydney.

The works in the Infinite Threads exhibition are truly recycled art. Each piece is put together using pieces of Eveline's previous paintings. Strips and rectangles are taken from the paintings, and are used to create a brand new work.

The inspiration came from scraps left over from other paintings, that she said "seemed to contain a DNA that would determine and direct future formations". Eveline says, "I hope audiences will walk away with a curiosity about my methods, but also a new way of pondering the questions of the impermanent nature of all things."

The Infinite Threads Opening Night will be held on Wednesday the 8th of August at the Conny Deitzschold Gallery, 99 Crown Street, East Sydney. The exhibition runs from the 8th of August till the 8th of September. All paintings are available for purchase.

Hi, Why is this considered to be a work of art? After all the main purpose of the latest (whichever) work (sorry, but I refused to call it art work) made with leftovers of the one before was to have a DNA in it.. For me artwork is something tangible, something you look and admire. What is there to admire on pieces of something sawn off together and glued to a some sort of backing? It shows nothing, it means nothing. I am aware her work is currently being displayed at some very important venues in Australia. Do you mean to say that part of my tax goes to purchase this....whatever you wish to call them?

Good morning Natasha:
I have to thank you for today you have taught me something new, I'll explain: I was always under the impression that "art" meant understandable beauty, the cration of faces, nature, etc.obvious to any one looking at them. With this in mind, I went to the interner in search of the meaning of the word art and this is what I found: the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
So this meaning has really not much to do with what I thougt art really meant.
Being a man I need to have the last word: What you show me was an expression of art in the eyes of just a few.
