Brontë Naylor Print


Artist: Brontë Naylor 

Title: Ruins_002

Bio: Bronte Naylor’s interdisciplinary practice is based on expanded collage; bringing together painting, photography, performance, intervention, social practice, spatial installation, and digital media. Her practice-led research is a continuous dialogue between studio practice and the Antipodean public and private space. Using post-post-studio methodologies, Naylor questions society’s validation of authority and hierarchy of place, resources, and expressions of outward positivity in the face of a contrasting reality.

Artwork Statement: Naylor’s work points to the reverse ruin of modern Australia, with particular attention paid to the Western unfamiliarity and denial of mourning. She supposes that ruins of modernity, cement and construction debris, like the human body are a vessel and a paradox of the temporal and historic. A memory of the past and a marker of the passage of time. The artist uses expanded collages to compare emotional anxieties surrounding love, mourning, and rubble. She believes both attempt to predict the future, one of inevitable death, decay, and dismantling.
