Sydney artist Jo Katsiaris presents a multi disciplinary show. By repurposing found material collected from the streets of Sydney and creating objects of beauty and value from waste.

Katsiaris explores themes surrounding the beauty of imperfection and the fragility of the environment by addressing the issues of rampant mass consumerism. The works are in a sense a call to arms. We as humans must make drastic and immediate change in our relationship to consumerism and the environment.

With a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) and a Bachelor of Law (Hons) from Sydney University, Jo went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts at NAS. Katsiaris has been a finalist in the Muswellbrook, Glebe, Hornsby and Waverley Art Prize’s. She has exhibited at The Hunters Hill Gallery, Bondi Pavilion, May St Studio’s, NAS, Waverley Art Centre and ART GALLERY On Darling.
