Pat Brassington is one of Australia’s most highly respected and influential artists working in photo-media. Through her ongoing practice, informed by Surrealism, Brassington’s work delves into the uncanny and the provocative effect ambiguity has on interpretation. Seemingly innocent, her images open up like a flower, gorgeous and dreamlike, then morph into a psychological Rorschach. In her work the endless possibilities of our complex inner states - narratives of sex, memory and identity - run quietly rampant. Brassington’s work is provocatively ambiguous, an arresting beauty underscoring its superbly loaded connotations.
