UPCOMING EXHIBITION: Shae Rooke in collaboration with Jess Dubblu present ‘Optical Scattering’ a smokin’ new video projected nightly 11th-27th August 2017 at Bar Josephine for West Projections festival. 


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, exploring the multitude of different ways that world can be experienced and interpreted. Currently she is creating detailed wall installations using thousands of metal drawing pins/thumb tacks. Her photography and video’s use the camera to trick your eyes. A dirty puddle on the ground becomes a sparkling cosmos, 3D hologram pictures are portals into fantasy landscapes and deflated balloon figures twitch to life. Shae’s artwork merges natural and constructed landscapes, messes with scale and twists 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 if your interested in purchasing or commissioning any artwork.
