Adrienne Kenafake is a visual artist living and working on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Her art practice spans an array of mediums including sculpture, textiles, collage, drawing and painting. The Australian landscape persists as a common thread that connects her works and projects, with a specific focus on the edges of the urban landscape and the fringe places where the wild and the developed intersect and interact. Her current body of sculptural work titled Entity
encompasses cremation, decomposition, plant and animal material, wire weaving and fire, to produce net like skeletal forms and scaffolds that act as capsules of experience, encounter and energy. Adrienne has exhibited extensively in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales including a solo exhibition at Tweed Regional Gallery in 2014 and the Radfly Youth Art Prize in 2016 where she was awarded first prize. Adrienne has participated in artist in residence programs nationally including the Summer Art Scholarship at the National Gallery of Australia in 2010, and in 2016 she won the Radfly Youth Art Prize. Adrienne is a current recipient in the inaugural City of Gold Coast Level Up youth arts incubator.
