We’ve fallen head over heels for Katie Pretti’s latest body-of-work. The 14 pieces that make up Swoon were inspired by Pretti’s recent experiences traveling and working around the world; each of them capturing the whirlwind of being somewhere unfamiliar: the dizzying sensations created by new colours, smells, sounds and sights. Just staring into the canvas, the floor begins to slip out from under your feet.
