Kaitlin Beckett is a painter, illustrator and sculptor working in Australia and New Zealand. Her mixed media works and assemblage sculptures are a curious bestiary of creatures from the sea, air, land and subconscious; expressing a surreal narrative rich in symbolism, humour and biological paradox.
She has held several solo exhibitions in Melbourne; exhibited in Australia, New Zealand, America, England, Japan, and Canada; and her works have been collected throughout the world.
Since childhood she has had a love for the fantastic and the imaginary, enjoying depicting the real and unreal together, harmony and conundrum, a juxtaposition of the unusual with the everyday. Her characters invoke a sense of pathos or disquieting whimsy, which encourages viewers to invent their own narratives.
