Kitty Callaghan’s surreal collages are power-packed with meaning
From scantily clad vixens amidst geological formations to pretty floral schemes, the artist’s astral assortments will boggle your brain
Kitty Callaghan has been a first-rate creative from a tender age. As a young tyke she’d mash-up all kinds of collages and paste-ups in Australia’s Southern Highlands, where she grew up. Cutting, pasting, and putting together fun scrapbooks and photomontage, her creative zeal continues to zoom to this day. Kitty’s freaky-cool photo-assortments fuse private passions with important topics like gender issues, feminism and the meaning of art. Her optical jolts embody vintage imagery, 70s and 80s nostalgia, the female silhouette and sentimental motifs. Excellent, ethereal, sensual and really beautiful, Kitty’s work will wake you up in a jiffy. Check it.
