Shanina Conway (Artist, Melbourne, Australia) creates mixed media, 3D artworks and paintings. By referencing romanticism, grand-guignolesque dark humour and symbolism, Conway finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities. The artist also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-seeking man who experiences a continuous loss.
idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, her artworks seem by-products of an earlier time .
Her artworks are often classified as part of the new romantic movement because of the desire for the everyday in the unfolding globalized world. However, this reference is not intentional, as this kind of art is part of the collective memory. With a conceptual approach, she creates work through labour-intensive processes which can be seen explicitly as a personal exorcism ritual. They are inspired by a nineteenth-century tradition of works, in which an ideal of ‘Fulfilled Absence’ was seen as the pinnacle.
Her works directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By questioning the concept of movement, she tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.

If you’ve read this waffle to here…I create because I have to and because I love it.
