The Lock-Up presents Rosie Deacon’s new, immersive installation HOW DO I KNOW IF MY PARROT IS HAPPY?, in which the artist draws upon familiar shapes, textures and figurines blended together to create a surreal realm in which the viewer is invited to examine the intricacies and allusory forms.

Embedded in The Lock-Up’s historical, dark and sombre spaces, the psychedelic colour patterns are formulated by an infinite process of layering and merging of different materials to produce a single final form. Biomorphic sculptural works of comical trees, wildlife and environmental details reference the flora and fauna of the artist’s time growing up as a youth in rural New South Wales. With emphasis upon three-dimensionality and tactility, deep immersive environmental installations have been a prominent conduit for Deacon to channel her memories and experiences into these sensationalised forms.
