Ones to Watch: Natalie Mather

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

Vivid, complex and fantastical describe the collage paintings of Melbourne-based artist Natalie Mather. Drawing her cues from sources including science fiction, geological imagery and historical architecture, her works are a beautiful cacophony of colour and geometry. Her unabashed use of colour draws from the visual language of 1980s pop culture and the bright and garish aesthetics she grew up around. During her studio closure as a result of COVID-19, Natalie has turned to drawing to continue constructing her dreamlike compositions on a smaller scale. Currently a Masters of Fine Art candidate at the Victorian College of the Arts, Natalie has been a finalist in prizes such as the Churchie, Fishers Ghost Art Award and Macquarie Emerging Art Award. She recently collaborated with New Agency on a mural commission for MARS Gallery and Stonnington Council.
