Sarah Brasier and Matthew Harris
2020 - 2023
Sarah Brasier is an artist working on Wadawurrung and Wurundjeri land. She is interested in friendship as a creative motivator and aims to build a supportive community of people in the art world. Her practice has a foundation in painting, but also extends to incorporate animation and performance-based video. Each of Sarah’s works could be interpreted as a scene from a life-long revenge tale, punctuated by moments of despair, happiness and occasional simple pleasures. Psychodramatic scenarios incorporate astute observations, absurdist thoughts, drawing on personal histories rendered in bright colours and humour to offset the dark origins elucidated through the practice. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art and graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2018. She also holds a Bachelor of Applied Science.
Matthew Harris was born in Wangaratta (Yorta Yorta/Scandinavian) and is an artist and sometimes curator whose own work often debases normative hierarchies with a queer mix of sentimentality, cuteness, vulgarity and abjection. Since dropping out of high school as a teenage goth, Matthew has had solo shows at Futures, Galerie Pompom, Neon Parc, Alaska Projects, Blindside. Matthew has been included in group shows at Murray Art Museum, The Hole, Hayden’s, Bus Projects, Sullivan & Strumpf.
