Artist-in-Residence: Tori-Jay Mordey
Drawing on both her Torres Strait Islander and English heritage, Tori-Jay Mordey’s contemporary illustrations explore themes of family and self-identity through detailed and immersive portraiture. Often using members of her own family as subject matter, Tori-Jay combines stylistic cartoon fantasy with stunning realism to capture the complexities of our inner lives and emotions. Tori-Jay’s artworks traverse multiple mediums, from digital illustration, drawing, painting, printmaking, film and murals. She has also authored and illustrated several children’s books.
Join us from September to December as Tori-Jay Mordey continues to explore her themes of identity when she takes over the Adelaide St Pavilion as Artist-In-Residence. Explore the artist’s process first-hand and observe the artist create new artworks within our open studio.
