Liss Fenwick’s work combines documentary-style photography with long-term conceptual and aesthetic visions. Visual languages are developed on location, in areas of bush surrounding her rural hometown in the Northern Territory and across northern Australia. Particular places, sites and objects that exist outside an artistic context are studied for their potential shifting meanings. The aim of her practice is to explore the allegorical potential of rural Australia throughout cycles of expansion and decay. Liss completed a dual Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts at the University of Queensland, graduating with first class honours. Her work has been selected as a finalist in several major prizes across Australia, and she has been awarded a number of bursaries, including the Australian Postgraduate Award that provides financial support to undertake a PhD.
