'Eggs With Soldiered Toast Buttered Well'
‘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. This book presents Gosse’s series, collating 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 how we tell and retell our collective histories of home will be lost over time as much of this architecture finds itself erased.
Each book comes with a limited edition woodblock print by Eliza Gosse.
