Natasha Burbury a Sydney based fine artist influenced by the trends of the 1960’s and 70s where psychotropic drugs took hold and contemporary art threatened to uncover all that was wrong within the world.
Classing herself as a hallucinatory symbolic artist. Where she conjures up strange worlds that share her deepest questions about herself and how this is connected her to the natural landscape.
Using a large variety of materials, often mixing acrylic paint, pen, glitter, sequins, gems and jewels. She explores a myriad of colour, line styles and delicate patterns that in some way reflect the methodologies and techniques of contemporary pop art.
Her subject is mainly portraiture that is often intertwined with the surroundings. Using the women figure, often human/spiritual being/alien with different creatures often scrambling though the intermeshing world.
Graduate of Cofa, Fine arts in 2013 Natasha is currently a resident at Creative art space Curl Curl. She is presently working on a collection ‘One last chance’ which asks questions about the effects of temperature variability and its participation with extinction. And what can we really do now to reverse our actions? Using painting as a reflection of her own as well as universal human greed as well as a cry for humans to step up to creating change. Each painting with wildlife intertwined throughout that has been affected by the change in climate.
