New Media Imagery

Ash McFarlane is a Brisbane based New Media Artist, and her work is a poetic combination of photographic images, comprised of her surroundings and incorporates an aspect of digital painting. Layers of artworks are combined into a single entity depicting experiences, fragments of memories, and a record of what has passed.

The artworks are created through a natural organic process, something that isn’t contrived or forced, but as a ‘go with the flow’ approach, leaving the viewer with an interpretation of everyday life as the artist has experienced it.

Ash McFarlane’s work is a contemporary and colourful rendition of the world around her.
