Claudia Greathead – ‘About Face’ (Online Only)

About Face is a series of new paintings by emerging Queensland based artist, Claudia Greathead. She was semi-finalist in this year’s Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and has been exhibiting regularly since graduating from Queensland College of Art in 2014.

Greathead’s paintings explore the peculiarities of self-presentation, both her own self-presentation and that of others. By painting family photographs – things familiar in subject matter but far away in time – Greathead reframes and re-examines these images from the point of view of her adult self. The “shit gardens series” sees Greathead lovingly depict strange and sometimes humorous scenes from Australian domestic gardens, drawing attention to the strange way people express their identity through their homes.
