YAZMIN THREADGATE- solo exhibition
‘NATURE’S ENERGY & THE ABSURD’
Yazmin Threadgate’s childhood years were spent in the rural town of Nhulunbuy located in remote north- east Arnhem land, Northern Territory. She moved to the Sapphire Coast of NSW in 2010 where she has worked on developing her career as an artist since 2017. This year she was accepted into the national Art School in Sydney.
By exhibiting and selling artworks in shops around the Sapphire Coast NSW, through word of mouth and social media, she has built a reputation and created a clientele that includes both national and international art collectors. She produces customised commissioned artworks across multiple mediums such as canvas, watercolour on paper and wall murals for both public and private clients.
Inspired by the beauty of the Australian Landscape, her art pays homage to her life experiences, her childhood in Arnhem Land and how much the profound depth of the First Nations Culture has had on her. She is heavily inspired by the complexity of the mind and the mystical energy of the Landscape and over the years has emerged as an artist with her own unique style and artistic practice.
My work is heavily inspired by the interconnectedness of Natures Energy and the Absurd.
I have been working on this series since the beginning of 2020.
I draw my concepts from the complexity of the Mind and the mystical energy of the Landscape.
My aim was to capture the regrowth and rejuvenation of both the Australian Landscape and community after the destructive 2019-2020 bushfires. How Nature repairs Itself to the finest of detail and creates new life after chaos.
The Absurd is another main theme which I drew concept from. I have always been fascinated by dreams and imagination. The mind is a complex thing. The uncertainty and chaotic re-order of life at the beginning of 2020 due to the impact of covid, we are still left questioning, “What is normal?”
Political disarray and confusion inspires imagination. In this exhibition I wanted to do a playful take on The Absurd nature of our current climate. Depicting the nonsensical nature of dreams and imagination.
