News, galleries and information on sculptor Karleena Mitchell 



Informed by her own migrant experience, Mitchell’s oeuvre is thematically broad – if not global – in concerns for geo-politics, culture and gender repression, and is often quietly imbued with a measure of personal existential quandary. Metaphor, satire and humour are regularly used to reposition her audience counter to mainstream media, re-presenting an often harsh reality in a contradictory marriage of sensual beauty and disturbing horror.

As a graduate of Sculpture from Monash University (2002), Mitchell’s work is held in several private collections and has been featured in a number of exhibitions including the McClelland Sculpture Prize, Sydney’s Sculpture by the Sea, Montalto Art Award, the Tom Malone Award, New Zealand’s Wallace Award and the Ranamok Award.
