Thursday the 31st of May I'll have a work up for Auction for WAYS charity event alongside artists Euan Macleod, Reg Mombassa and Peter O’Doherty. Over 40 artworks from leading and emerging artists will be auctioned on the night to raise essential funds for the WAYS alternative education program WAYS Secondary, a school that gives young people who have become disconnected from mainstream education a second chance. Tickets can be found here .
For WAYS, Eliza depicts 'The Kelly House' which was designed by architect Douglas Snelling. The Bellevue Hill residence was a homage to Frank Lloyd Wright, winning the 1956 'House of the Year' Award from Architecture and Arts magazine. Unfortunately in 2013, the house was demolished, and with it a part of Australian design history. In her paintings Eliza revives these design histories and the beauty of Australian suburbia.
