One of Australia’s leading contemporary artists and internationally renowned, Tracey Moffatt is highly regarded for her formal and stylistic experimentation in film, photography and video. Her work draws on the history of cinema, art and photography as well as popular culture and her own childhood memories and fantasies. Themes such as struggles between individuals, childhood cruelties in suburban life, the toughness of life on the ‘frontier’, the subversion of stereotypes and relations between black and white Australians are apparent in her works. Referencing the artist’s own life and experiences, it nonetheless transcends the specific to create meanings of universal significance. Ultimately, Moffatt’s work deals with the human condition in all its complexities.
"Something More", a series of nine images, of which this image is # 5, is the first of Moffatt’s photographic series which demonstrates all the elements that have made her work so acclaimed: theatricality, references to film, art and photographic history, issues of race and gender and ambiguity of the characters. There is a strong implication of narrative in the series: a young woman dreams of leaving her isolated home for the big city, but never makes it.
– In very good condition.
