Elvis Richardson is an artist working in sculpture, photographic and collecting based practices.
Elvis collects and curates personalised objects, imagery, and data she extracts from public sources and re-constructs them as the raw materials of her studio practice to comment on taste, class, the home, and her own agency as an artist when also trapped in an aspirational exposure-based system of certain economic precarity. Richardson assembles and modifies her found objects and images so as to disrupt the everyday commodification of lifestyle and satirically expose the promises, disappointments, and contradictions that we all live with.
Elvis Richardson is the founding editor of www.countess.report collecting and publishing data on gender representation in the Australian art world. Richardson’s works are held in the collections of National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of NSW, Artbank, City of Fremantle, Moreland Council and the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art at the University of Western Australia.
Elvis is represented by Hugo Michell Gallery, Adelaide and galerie pompom, Sydney.
