Saffron Newey is a Melbourne based artist completing a PhD at RMIT University. Her work has been included in various group and solo exhibitions in Australia.
The focus of Newey’s practice and research is painting in the post-Internet era, specifically how the online database and screen culture have affected the medium. Painterly allusions and homages to the traditional Romantic sublime feature in Newey’s work – mashed up with random Internet image data. The work inhabits the new realm of the digital sublime.
