Prue Stent

 [ARTIST STATEMENT]I responded to 'Kacey' on quite a subconscious and emotional level. I created an image that was inspired by my feelings of defeat and loss after reading the poem. The obscured identity and 'smothering' of the subject aimed to reflect these raw emotions. I do not intend the viewer to have a pleasant experience when viewing this image.

Prue Stent is a photographic artist currently based in Melbourne. Her work is a co-mingling of sculpture, installation, moving image and photography, through which she explores the relationship between feminism and surrealism. Prue's inspiration doesn't derive from wanting to push a rational intellectual message or philosophical point of view, but instead from a perverse curiosity. Since graduating from a Bachelor of Art (Photography) at RMIT in 2014, Prue's been involved in a short film and various collaborations with musicians, artists, fashion labels, magazines, including Oyster, i-D, Rush, Desktop and Vice. As an emerging artist she intends to continue on producing work in a collaborative team context, using photography in all sorts of ways, with all sort of purposes.
