Natalie Guy – Biography
Natalie Guy makes objects as artworks, and many of these objects mine and manipulate pre-existing imagery from art and history.
These references may respond to historical style cues and sites, including architectural interiors and exteriors and also specific figures; artists, architects, and designers – usually mid-century modernists. Her recent focus has been translation between built architecture and sculpture; creating artworks in a process has come to understand as visual translation. She notes that architecture is a potent and constant keeper of social memory. Her artworks intend to invoke and transform that social memory destabilising a straightforward reading of the source and the new work.
