What is it about Australians that make them a bit….well, different?
Photographer, sculptor, artist and writer, Patricia Piccinini, is part of an exhibition at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville,TN, Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination that runs through May 28th. Born in Sierra Leone, Patricia moved to Australia as a girl. She received a Bachelor of Arts (Economic History) from Australian National University and a Bachelor of Arts (Painting) from the Victorian College of the Arts. She exhibits worldwide, and her site reveals the scope of her vision, including essays on art and photography. An exhibition of her sculptures, There are no Strangers, is currently on display at the Tolarno Galleries in Melbourne through April 21st.
I’m sharing a range of her work, not necessarily included in these exhibitions.
