I am a Melbourne based visual artist. My creative practice is interdisciplinary, as I work across textiles, sculpture, performance, and photography. My body of work shifts between figuration and abstraction with feminist methodologies of feeling and listening being central to my making process. I am interested in the body as a mediator between the internal and external, exploring how wearable objects, portraiture and soft sculptural objects can become agents for the external expression of our internal world.
My recent projects include Holding the Space: An investigation into absence and grief developed during my Master of Fine Art at RMIT; BooBoo a 2020 group exhibition at Assembly Point and a 2019 solo exhibition To Be Seen at Northern Rivers Community Gallery (Ballina Shire Council NSW).
I work closely with other artists who have similar interested to my own and I am keen to connect to those interested in textiles, craft, abstraction, feminism and collaboration. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently completing a Master of Fine Art by coursework at RMIT. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Art with first class Honours from Monash University Melbourne, a Bachelor of Art in Social Sciences with Honours and a Diploma of Visual Arts from Victoria University. My craft-based skills were taught to me by my mother Marion Waters and my grandmothers Eileen Argus and Mary Dalton. I have worked in Adult Education for over 15 years including teaching roles in Art History/Theory and Sculptural Materials.
