Carla McRae: Adrift Together


2020 MPRG commission

MPRG is excited to present a new commission featuring the work of Melbourne-based artist and illustrator Carla McRae. McRae’s work muses on everyday moments, small gestures and simple pleasures. Her new large-scale mural at MPRG plays with geometric forms and bold vibrant colour, activating the space with playfulness and lightness.

After studying Graphic Design and Communication at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, McRae’s unfurling illustration practice drove her to Melbourne, where she has been exhibiting and working ever since. She is represented commercially by The Jacky Winter Group.

McRae’s MPRG commission follows on from the success of Gosia Wlodarczak’s drawing installation A through-grey room which transformed the MPRG café in 2017.
