Patricia Piccinini has shown in her Tasmanian exhibition, Evolution, that she possesses a fertile imagination.
Piccinini uses her art to explore genetic engineering and the blurred line between the natural and the artificial. She creates freaks of nature imbued with a disarming humanity.
Piccinini says that she sees herself as an atypical artist - not observing the world from the outside but feeling it within.
The world hits me, it bowls me over, and art is my way of responding.
