Natalie Synnott (b.1994, Sydney)


Natalie Synnott uses painting, ceramics and installation to create saccharine worlds that explore modern anxieties and existential dread through a slapstick-tragic lens. Anecdotal and absurd; garish figures crawl and stumble through personal narratives and metaphors littered with poetry; reading like a love letter to being alive and a study of the angst and humour that accompanies.
