ARTIST: Jodie Maurer
Jodie Maurer is an artist who lives in Alexandria. Jodie studied painting at Sydney College of the Arts, graduating with first class honours in 2001. Since that time she has exhibited her paintings in the Whitechapel Gallery in London, Washington Square Gallery in New York City, and held numerous shows throughout Sydney.
Her paintings have been described as the visual equivalent of the calm before the storm, evoking a sense of uneasiness, a moment ripe with potential. Her references are photos of a tableau constructed out of refuse which in turn performs the task of a backdrop for either heroic or diabolical acts.
