Adelaide Opus

Adelaide is a self-taught, emerging Tasmanian artist with a multi-disciplinary arts practice.

Currently studying a Masters in Art Therapy, she is curious to explore the porous space between the material and the temporal.

Reckoning is the first public showing of Adelaide Opus’ work.


Using the raw materiality and immediacy of paint combined with delicacy of drawn line, Adelaide’s work describes the polarity of life’s opposing forces. She employs a visual language of presence and absence to explore an internal landscape; navigating themes of power and oppression, resilience and sexuality.
