Paradise by artist Kate Just makes powerful connections with earlier works of soft sculpture in the Ararat Regional Art Gallery's permanent collection - which extend from 1970's craft-based works, to second-wave feminist art, to more recent post-modern investigations into materials and process. It also reflects the a growing interest in knitting amongst a younger generation of women who are setting up "knitting circles" in pubs or "yarn-bombing" public spaces.
