‘I am fas­ci­nated by the im­me­di­acy of sym­bols and longevity of myths, rein­ter­preted through the lens of his­tory and cul­ture over and over again since ori­gin.’ – Pet­rina Hicks

‘Still Life Stu­dio’ presents a suite of prints by pho­to­graphic artist Pet­rina Hicks. Her se­duc­tive and haunting cre­ations ex­plore the re­la­tion­ship be­tween an­cient cul­ture and con­tem­po­rary life, draw­ing on mythol­ogy, sym­bol­ism and his­tor­i­cal mo­tifs. Hicks re­veals a fas­ci­na­tion with im­per­fect beauty and in­ves­ti­gates fe­male rep­re­sen­ta­tion through art his­tory and the me­dia.

Blue­bird, 2018, pig­ment print, edi­tion of 8 + 2AP, 100 x 100cm Cour­tesy the artist and THIS IS NO FAN­TASY dianne tanzer + ni­cola stein, Mel­bourne
