Isabella Darcy (Australia)


Artist Statement/ Biography

Darcy's practice which is centred around the nature of collecting, trading and finding objects and materials, and exploring those objects’ perceived relationships to identity and utility. In the past year, her exploration and dissection of material value through her practice has also assisted in responding to the paradoxical materiality of my art-making processes within a neo-materialist society.


Isabella Darcy is an emerging cross-media artist and recent graduate from Monash University, Bachelor of Fine Art, based in Melbourne, Australia. Her practice follows an interest in the systems and flux of value within consumable objects and design, reconsidering and exploring value and the alignment with ways of contemporary culture, material culture and human consumption. She believes materials and objects, are symbolic of how we navigate our lives.
