TRANSIT is a preview show from Stacey Korfiatis.

It is a mix of new, existing, and in-progress work. The exhibition is designed to give an insight into the process of creating art whilst working with ongoing mental and physical health challenges.

It is an intersection of inspiration, opportunity, and optimism colliding with burn out - resulting in the artist calling a truce with her poor mental health, and negotiating a new resolution shown within this exhibition.

It is also an intersection of atypical representations: both the varied people and bodies on display in the artworks, and the mental and physical health of the artist.


Maintaining a strong interest in both 2- and 3-dimensional creating, Stacey has had ongoing involvement in the Melbourne art community since 2008. She has participated in a number of group, solo and curated shows. In addition to making her own work, Stacey has worked as studio assistant for jeweller Blanche Tilden. Stacey Korfiatis holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Metals & Jewellery) from Monash University.
