Pat Brassington

Pat Brassington’s work is held in many public collections including the Art Gallery of New South Wales; Queensland Art Gallery; National Gallery of Australia; Museum of Contemporary Art.

Pat Brassington is one of Australia’s leading artists, celebrated for a unique aesthetic that is at once charming and menacing. Blurring the boundaries of reality and fantasy, desire and repulsion, her images explore a surreal, dreamlike logic that challenges our senses and undermines the authority of photography. Her aim, she explains, is to “pitch my images just off the verge of normality, into those dense patches where the commonplace goes awry.”
