Tai Snaith, Portrait of a Sunday Painter (2015)
- 297 x 420 mm
- Edition of 5 + AP, Pegasus Print
Tai Snaith is interested in the point where still life becomes real life. How and why does an artist express her life through a series of pictures? With a practice which employs many different forms of research and materials and presents them within widely varying sites and contexts including collage, drawing, painting, performance, writing and publishing, her work is often personal, collaborative and experimental.
In addition to practicing as an artist, she is a curator, producer and writer. Tai has shown extensively both in Australia and overseas with her work held in both private and public collections. She has written for Art & Australia, Architecture Australia, Artichoke, Yen and Un magazine; is a visual arts reviewer on TripleR radio; and worked as a producer for the Next Wave Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival and Melbourne Emerging writers festival. She has been the recipient of local and federal government grants and residencies and was this year’s winner of the acquisitive Banyule Award for works on paper.
