Cultural Fascination

Jarra Karalinar Steel is a multidisciplinary artist and curator known for her Melbourne Art Tram and her focus on community art and large scale public installations. Steel is of Boon Wurrung, Wemba Wemba, Trawlwoolway, English and Scottish descent, and is based in Melbourne’s south on Boonwurrung country.

Cultural Fasciation celebrates and connects us with a Kulin visual language. The work is inspired by Kulin possum skin cloak designs and is expressed through the use of digital design tools. Steel’s work explores her identity, memories, pop culture, folklore from her cultural history.

Cultural Fascination is part of the Home Art Collection

At Home, we believe in the power of art. The Home Art Collection is created to enrich our spaces and the lives of our residents. Featuring the diverse stories and perspectives of emerging and established Australian artists, the collection includes painting, sculpture, photography, and digital art both commissioned and acquired. Designed to create moments of reflection, beauty, and inspire curiosity and conversation, the Home Art Collection, like a well-curated home, will grow and evolve over time.
Located in some of Melbourne and Sydney’s most desirable neighbourhoods, our expanding portfolio of rental communities gives us a platform to build a unique Australian collection. Developed by Home and our curatorial collaborator Craft, the Home Art Collection will be supported by a dynamic in-building art program that will include artist talks, events, masterclasses, and workshops.
