Tina McKenzie

0406 814 219
Tina McKenzie is an emerging artist working on Kaurna land in Adelaide, South Australia who is currently using a variety of mediums to explore the themes of home, family and the environment. Sometimes autobiographical and sometimes speculative, Tina uses her work to pull apart the ideas that frame conventional homes and families, often confronting and interrogating her own past experiences in the process. A house isn't always a home and sometimes the family you choose is the family you deserve.

Tina uses a broad mix of printmaking processes and other materials to give and gain insight into how real, everyday families live, exploring the world of unwashed dishes, piles of laundry, broken families and the attachments that we all grow over time to buildings and the places we grow up and old in. Tina intends her practice to be a window into the worlds in which we live, a peep hole into less than perfect families and a call for intense and intentional connection with land and lifeforce.
