My World is Erica Berechree’s first solo show at Arts Project Australia.
Berechree’s drawings consistently references Google Earth via an aerial viewpoint, gesturing towards how we both construct and perceive the maps that now define our position and location within the world.

The artist’s work subsequently reveals our contemporary urban and digital landscapes, as well as the joys of domestic life, through a rich technicolour lens. Berechree’s 'Google Earth' paintings are further complimented by a small collection of photographs that present images of leftover 'cottons' from her mother's stitching offcuts that
she has rearranged to mimic the movement of the roads in the 'Google Earth' paintings.

As Arts Project Australia Gallery Manager and Curator Sim Luttin says of the show, “Berechree’s work is intriguing because it represents aerial viewpoints, which are both global and digital landscapes, and fills these landscapes with domestic tropes, conflating multiple spheres simultaneously.”

Berechree primarily works in painting and digital art and has exhibited both nationally and internationally at Federation Square, Melbourne; Linden New Art, Melbourne; Arts Centre Melbourne, Melbourne; Crawford Art Gallery, Ireland; Gallery 101, Canada.
