Artist - Melbourne

CURRENT EXHIBITION: ‘Visiting Paradise’ Cowwarr Art Space, Cowwarr 2/10/15 – 30/11/15  |  UPCOMING SOLO: ‘Spectacle’ Seventh Gallery, Melbourne 31/3/16 – 15/4/16


Shae Rooke is a Melbourne based photographer, video artist and curator. She makes her art from the little things, finding the unexpected in the everyday world. Sometimes her camera tricks you into seeing a fantastical cosmos when you’re looking into a dirty puddle on the road, sometimes she simply picks out unusual details like a curled leaf hiding in plain sight…… 


An emerging artist, Shae has exhibited and been on artist residencies throughout Australia and across the seas in Europe and China. She also collaborates with arts collectives, artists, art spaces, sound designers and even a balloon artist. She’s always up for discussing projects or exhibitions so get in touch! 

Keep an eye out on Shae’s Tumblr for new projects including photographs of creepily deflating balloon figures and videos of 3D hologram pictures twisting gently before the camera.
