TextaQueen is Australia’s felt-tip superhero. Renowned for their use of the humble felt-tip marker to boldly re-interpret the tradition of the salon nude, TextaQueen explores politics of sex, gender, and identity in tangent with ideas of self-image and interpersonal relationships. Their practice articulates delicate interplays between vulnerability and empowerment, intimacy and exhibitionism, and subjective and collective expressions of feminist, queer, racial, and cultural identities. They have exhibited widely and wildly at galleries in Australia with acronyms such as MCA, PICA, AGNSW, GSCAS, ACMI, and GOMA, and internationally in New York, Chicago, Portland (OR), Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Montreal.
