Matilda Brown Celestial

Work by Matilda Brown

I was initially interested in appropriating canonical artworks with Barbie representing the feminine ideal. As my body of work progressed and I became further influenced by artists such as Moffatt and Sherman, my concept evolved. An evocative underworld emerged from experimenting with the structural frame, using colours, shadows and light, expressing my spirituality through pantheistic undertones.
