Portraits & Objects by Petrina Hicks

Petrina Hicks utilises the seductive and glossy language of commercial photography to create artworks that probe at the false promise of perfection, exploring photography’s ability to both create and corrupt the process of seduction and consumption. Her work often explores female identity making reference to mythology and art history and drawing associations between these elements and contemporary image culture. Of further interest is the symbiotic relationship between animal and human reflected in her work. Petrina Hicks has exhibited widely though solo and groups shows in Australia, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, USA, UK, Japan, China, Mexico and Brazil.
