Drawing forms the core of Jody Graham’s art. Driven by an atavistic technique, she uses unconventional tools, found objects, and idiosyncratic approaches to explore contemporary art.
A scavenger, Jody utilises in her art what she finds, whether natural residue or decaying bones. She then directly engages with nature by leaving artworks in the rain, dragging some over rocks, plunging others into muddy dams.
‘Getting Pinked’ emerged from residencies in Mount Wilson in December 202o and Bilpin in January 2021. It draws on the human and emotional toll as much as the natural and environmental impact of the Black Summer fires.
