Place is an ongoing theme in Anthea’s work. It is a certain place where she keeps returning to in her art making. Predominantly working in painting, Anthea is exploring formalities of representation and abstraction in painting and how to relate this medium to these ideas. It is within explorative compositions and representations that Anthea’s paintings are placed somewhere in between representation and abstraction. Working from memory and references of her own, Anthea’s paintings delve into emotions and mood derived from this place.
Anthea grew up in north east Victoria and completed her BFA in Fine Art (painting) at RMIT, Melbourne.
She has held solo exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney, and has been a part of group exhibitions at various galleries in Melbourne as well as regional galleries in Victoria. She was a finalist in the Macquarie Group Emerging Artist Prize in 2016.
Anthea is currently studying a master of contemporary art at the Victorian College of Art, Melbourne.
