Eggs With Soldiered Toast Buttered Well is a series of paintings by Eliza Gosse based on the memories of Australians who grew up in modernist homes built toward the middle of the twentieth century. The series collates amusing if somewhat mundane stories that link the architectural quirks of this typology with that which occurred within its walls.

By rendering modernist architecture in gouache alongside anecdotal experiences, Gosse posits the importance of design of this era within the broader narrative of Australian domesticity. There is a risk that unless we tell and retell our collective stories of home, that they will be lost, as much of the architecture of the time has itself been erased.
