Mirka Mora: Pas De Deux, Drawing and Dolls

Exhibition and Shows

27 Oct 2018 to 24 Mar 2019

A beloved and central figure in the cultural life of Australia, Mirka Mora has long captured the public imagination with her distinctive art and inimitable personality.

In celebration of Mirka’s 90th birthday, this exhibition brings together some of the artist’s most personal work: drawings and soft-sculpture dolls from her home and studio where she has kept them close for many decades. For Mirka these two art forms go hand-in-hand. ‘My dolls are my drawings in three-dimensions’, she says.

The myriad works on display offer a glimpse into Mirka’s enchanting private universe, where hybrid characters derived from fairy tales, folk art, surrealism and the artist’s vivid daydreams intermingle. Together they create a compelling portrait of Mirka’s innermost self.
