ARTIST INFO

 

About 

 
Matilda’s practice is rooted in making, usually, images and objects. She uses drawing and painting, cloth, clay and paper sculpture to investigate how and why we define ourselves as human, and not animal. Collapsing the faulty definition of the human is a way in to questioning other cultural binaries. The hairy women and their animal familiars are players and figures with whom we can explore the in-between places.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 
The postcards represent a current new direction in my work. The world of the hairy people is expanding, they are making friends with goddesses, dancing by with dogs and donning clothes. These images are gentle starting points of stories to be told.
