Considered one of Australia’s foremost contemporary photomedia artists, Pat Brassington has been beguiling audiences for over 30 years. She is influenced by Surrealism and notions of the unconscious, which infuse her imagination along with her material processes. Unexpected juxtapositions are rife in her images, taking form through collage. Drawing from an archive of her own black and white photographs, found imagery and objects, she works to alter and shift what is recognizable, aiming to pitch her images “just off the verge of normality, into those dense patches where the commonplace goes awry,” she explains.
