Arts Monday’s Jane Raffan interviews the artist TextaQueen

TextaQueen’s nude portraits, predominantly of women, are executed in the humble and unforgiving ‘texta’ and felt-tip pen on paper.

Arts Monday’s Jane Raffan interviews Texta about a new body of work concentrating exclusively on a series of self-portraits – where the artist explores the personal evolution of identity, incorporating graphic elements into largely fictional metaphorical inner narratives.

TextaQueen was showcased at Optimism at the Queensland Art Gallery’s Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane in 2008-9 and was a finalist in National Works on Paper Prize 2008 at the Mornington Peninsular Regional Gallery and in the 2002 Dobell Drawing Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Texta was one of ten young artists in Primavera 2002 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.
