UNLEASHED - Artist Profile: Aurora Elwell

Aurora Elwell

Yuggera Ugarapul Lands (Lockyer Valley)


Residing in the Lockyer Valley, Aurora Elwell recently graduated with a Bachelor of Creative Arts with Honours from the University of Southern Queensland.   

Oversized ceramic vessels act as a metaphor for the human condition throughout Elwell's work. Examining desires, ideas and emotions through the tactile medium and sculptural forms. The series featured in Unleashed explores notions of balancing complex and contrasting emotions. Diptych Alter Ego explores alternate sides of the artists' personality, reflecting on the dichotomy through two contrasting yet complementary vessels. One exuberant and the other introspective, examining the desire to harmonize these internal elements. Balance examines the desire to gain harmony in a difficult environment. The deeply personal works emerge from Elwell's reflections on her emotional landscape.
