Marley Myles is a multidisciplinary artist working with ink, acrylics, hand embroidery and screen printing in a highly contemporary, Pop-Surrealist aesthetic.
Myles’ work is formed with simple lines and technique, composing a visual narrative dense with symbolism. Rich with colour, surreal motifs and inspired by folk-tales, the natural world and identity, Myles creates playful, vibrant paintings and works on paper.
Utilising emotive symbols to perpetuate social constructs of identity, Myles employs the powerful language that forms when these symbols are combined with traditional hand embroidery. Paying homage to the Feminists, Witches and Riot Grrls before her, Myles draws on this rich history as a launching pad for her own work to inspire a new generation of social and political aware wild folk.
Myles’ work has been exhibited in Australia, the US and featured in online art blogs.
