Colour Theory: Karla Dickens
Karla Dickens
Season 3  |  Episode 2  |  NITV  |  June 19, 2016

Karla Dickens’ lifelong search for belonging has taken her from a tumultuous coming of age in Sydney to the idyllic rural setting of New South Wales’ Northern Hinterlands, with years of self-imposed exile and recovery in between. Art has played a vital role in Karla’s journey and her contemporary collages, sculptures and installations reflect a personal story, using a mixture of history and textural layers of materials to contextualise her artwork. Now with her young daughter and sometimes collaborator, Ginger, by her side, Karla haunts local recycling depots and second-hand stores with a bowerbird’s eye for rusty, crusty things that have got a history.
