Pat Brassington is a contemporary Australian artist working in the fields of photography, and digital arts. Born in 1942, in the town of Hobart, Tasmania.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. Brassington often conflates opposites – human and animal, shock and the banal, attraction and repulsion – perhaps asking us to consider the delicate balance between these constructs. Despite walking this thin line, Brassington’s works remain seductive. With a lightness of touch, gentle humour and a deft use of colour she creates works and worlds where the senses prevail.
