Dark Night of the Madonna Madonne

The works represented in the Madonne series reflect Turiya's observance of the rites of passage for woman if she chooses to initiate herself through childbirth. The Madonna is the last representative of the sacred and divine feminine in our western christian culture. Turiya wants to talk about the empowerment of the feminine to create beauty, light and love in the face of great darkness and dissolution of feminine mysteries while utilising the iconic style.

(not) just a suburban girl

Being born into the suburbs of Sydney in 1960, Turiya has a sentimental and nostalgic look at her childhood using some of  the familiar consumer icons that were a hallmark of Australian life. This is a conversation about how individuals have been accultured by a series of concepts, sometimes brutally applied, that have become a mistaken identity which veils the true self which is radiant, simple and universal.

Turiya's approach to this body of work is divergent yet cohesive in it's exploration of the theme.
