Elvis Richardson - New South Wales
Elvis is an interdisciplinary artist whose conceptual practice explores identity and recognition through a collection based methodology. Elvis’s raw materials are ‘found’ and obsolete personalised mass-produced objects and images she uses them to reconstruct stories of ambition and abandonment, public recognition and private nostalgia.
Elvis’s work has been exhibited in Australian contemporary art spaces, museums and commercial galleries and she has been the director of a number of artist run initiatives including First Draft (96/97), and DEATH BE KIND (2010/12) and currently True Estate www.true-estate.gallery. Elvis is the founding editor of CoUNTess blog www.countesses.blogspot.com publishing data on gender representation in the Australian visual arts sector which launched a new platform in 2017 www.countess.report.
