Eloise Kirk is a Hobart based artist who was awarded Shotgun 8. Eloise collects, divides and then reassembles images and materials, pitting the precious against the precarious. The work is explicitly elemental, offering an aesthetic response to the interval between beauty and disaster, straddling the periphery of the romantic and the surreal. Shotgun is a partnership project between CAT, DETACHED and Mona that supports the advancement of selected Tasmanian artist/s through a customised and intensive program of high-level industry access, production assistance and critical engagement. Eloise has been Artist in Residence at CAM during semester 2 this year, utilising the opportunity to assist in the production of work for Shotgun.

Shotgun 8: dark maria presented at CAT, 28 September – 27 October, 2019. CAT curator, Kylie Johnson will preface the Art Forum with an introduction to Shotgun.
