ABOUT

Shae Rooke is a photographer, video and installation artist based in Melbournes West. She makes her art from the little things, finding the unexpected in the everyday world. Her camera can trick you into seeing a sparkling cosmos when you’re looking at a dirty puddle on the ground, hologram pictures become like portals into fantasy landscapes and deflated balloon figures resemble zombies twitching to life. Her diverse portfolio of artworks share an interest in merging natural and constructed landscapes, messing with scale and using tricks of the camera to twist perception. Her favourite words are creepy and cute.

12923219_974596475967829_7858340160738967947_nShae has exhibited throughout Australia, Europe and China on public art, video projections, sculptural commissions and cultural exchange projects. An avid collaborator, Shae has worked closely with arts organisations, collectives, sound designers and even a balloon artist to develop innovative creative projects. Email shae.rooke@gmail.com if your interested in purchasing or commissioning any artwork.
