Jodi Clark

Home / Emerging artists / Jodi Clark

Originally from Western Australia, Jodi Clark began her studies at Santa Monica College in California, USA and recently completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at UNSW Art and Design in Sydney, where she currently lives and works.

Clark’s work interrogates and disrupts outmoded societal constructs and the either/or binaries of gender and sexuality, providing a divergence from the ‘norm’ and presenting the unapologetic ‘other’. Clark experiments with how the meaning of an image becomes re-authored in new contexts through the exploration of line. She often combines the human figure and animals, an act of resistance toward traditional standards of gender and identity, altering the body’s form itself to render it uncategorisable.

Her most recent works hybridise the human figure and animals, evoke and interrogate pornography, and yield absurd and perhaps disturbing images and thematic combinations. These works are reclamation of female sexuality, refuting the eminence of the male gaze through images that challenge and render absurd the commodification and repression of women.
