Rhonda Dee is an American artist based in Sydney. Working across the media of painting, sculpture, installation and collage, Dee’s body of work explores the internal geographies of the body and psyche. Using the body as a visual platform for the construction and deconstruction of identity, Dee’s works explore the fleeting qualities of subjective experience, and the desire to transcend confines of bodily form. The soft colours and gradually built layers which are repeated throughout her paintings and collages reference the tones and textures of the body, while the use of semi-transparent paper adds a psychological, dream-like quality to the already abstracted forms. Dee’s lyrical, often calligraphic mark making revels in the sensitivity inherent in her process.
Dee has exhibited both locally and internationally and has taken on a number of commissions and residencies. Her works feature in public collections at Sal Art Gallery, Long Island, NY, and at Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
