Vexta

Ahead of her new show in Brisbane, VNA caught up with straight-up from-the-streets artist, Vexta. One of the highest-profile artists in Australia, she has a unique, self-taught style and a DIY attitude. We like her lots.

Vexta, tell us about your new show, what’s it all about?

My next exhibition is called In-Between Worlds, it opens on Thursday April 19th up at Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane, Australia. It’s a collection of new work examining our relationship to ourselves, ideas about evolution, the mysterious interconnectedness of all living things and the atomic particles that hold it all together. It originally spawned from thinking about the way everything, ourselves included, is constructed from tiny particles, the way those atomic particles are clustered and thinking what would happen if they shattered. It’s about what they would look like if we could see them and how if they did shatter, it would be a new world. So, this show is about that possibility. I’ve painted the particles as these geometric neon shards and in the show they are fusing and pulling things apart. The show itself includes paintings, installation, a light sculpture and a sound piece.
