Public Description: 

Sharmane Maddigan traverses a broad range of creative expression; she is a painter, photographer, songwriter and musician. In Fragmented, a striking and self-assured photographic portrait, Maddigan explores the multi-layered issues of identity: physical and spiritual, conscious and subconscious, reality and perception.

Maddigan is a descendant of the Wamba Wamba and Wertigikia people of North-Western Victoria. She was the winner of the Gumbri White Dove Acquisitive Prize (2010) for Fragmented and was short listed for the Victorian Indigenous Art Awards (2009).

Makers Statement: 
My artwork explores my perception of the inner and outer world of one’s self, portraying and mapping through art the landscape of the conscious and subconscious from a cultural and a transcendental level and the many levels in between. It explores the abstract realities of the physical and spiritual. It is the perception of reality and being.
