Monika Scarrabelotti is a Sydney based artist who makes gestural figurative sculptures that
engage with the human condition. Seeking to create works that are emotionally raw, her
sculptures traverse the sensual and voyeuristic, engaging the spectator in an intimate response.
Scarrabelotti completed a Masters in Fine Art at National Art School in 2017, and has a continued
connection with art education through teaching of workshop classes at the Tom Bass Sculpture
Studio and NAS. Scarrabelotti exhibits regularly and has a growing number of artworks in
Australian private collections.
In recent work, my sculptures spring forth from a yearning for the natural world.
The use of gestural figures and anthropomorphic forms are used to covey
metaphors and narratives, depicting the comedy and tragedy of every day life.
Through exploration of sexuality, eco-anxiety and environment, I
attempt to investigate structures fundamental to the human
condition. I am interested in capturing a moment in time, personal
narratives with a sense of voyeurism, as though to peek through a
window into another’s life, whilst capturing something emotional and
dreamlike. Themes of sex, mythology and the mundane are common
in my work.
