Studio portrait of artist Elena Papanikolakis

b. 1984 Cootamundra, NSW

Elena Papanikolakis lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Her practice melds found materials, personal and cultural remnants and memory to probe the nature of experiences, function and authenticity. She is interested in exploring the periphery of understanding and the potential presented when observations are unravelled through degrees of abstraction. Her works are heavily invested in material processes and often consist of painting, collage and text.
