Felicity Townsend is an Adelaide-based emerging artist with an expanded practice encompassing sculpture, installation and performance. She obtained First Class Honours in Visual Arts through Flinders University in 2017.
Townsend's practice is fuelled by a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all matter and a fascination with the way in which every aspect of life in the macro, visible world is impacted by the forces and particles of the invisible, sub-atomic world. She combines her interest in data and formulae with a deep attentiveness to emotion and affect in her work, often through vulnerable explorations of personal experiences. Her practice has been deeply influenced by childhood memories of growing up in a remote community in Papua New Guinea and continues to be informed by an ongoing curiosity for the mysteries of science and mathematics.
