Patricia Piccinini is one of Australia’s most-important artists known for her hyper-realistic and enigmatic sculptures that depict hybrid humanoid creatures. Rendered in materials such as fibreglass, silicone and hair, her works explore the dynamics of our relationship between families and species, science and nature, art, and the environment. Selected to represent Australia at the 2003 Venice Biennale, Piccinini created We are Family, a project that transformed the Australian Pavilion into a home of the future. Piccinini’s fast growing reputation is evident in solo exhibitions at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Centro de Artes Visuales, and Artium Museum amongst others.
