Minaxi 2Bookings are now open for the 3rd in our Through Splintered Walls paper art workshop series, with Minaxi May.

Known for her multidisciplinary process driven art practice, Minaxi explores digital and paper collage processes, sculpture and installation. Investigating themes and materials from popular media, consumerist culture, DIY, fashions and her surrounds, she explores beauty, commodity, design and the everyday. She is often influenced by the childlike, humour, the cute and kitsch highlighting aspects of desire and spectacle. Aesthetically, her art is typically identified with an extravagant use of colour, repetition and play, with an emphasis on what already exists. These ‘readymade’ objects, are reused and recontextualised into new compositions, to encourage fresh perceptions of reality, fantasy and inspire spectacle. Her work is a mix of Pop, Readymades and Conceptual art with an emphasis on expression through colour. Minaxi has had extensive experience in arts admin, lecturing, public and community art with diverse organisations. Currently she is the lead artist for AWESOME Arts Creative Challenge ‘Remix’ and PhD candidate at Murdoch University.

The Minaxi May paper art workshop will be held at the Gary Holland Community Centre, cnr Kent St & Flinders Lane, from 1-4pm, Saturday March 9. To book a place contact Donna Cochrane, Community Development Officer (Arts & Culture) on 9528 0385 or donna.cochrane@rockingham.wa.gov.au. Places are limited, so bookings are essential.
