Miri Badger (b.1996) is a painter and ceramicist living and working in Meanjin/Brisbane. Her work is predominantly representational with subject matter that investigations uncanny visual interactions. An amalgamation of seemingly mismatched objects and figures are often collaged in ambiguous spaces within her work. This contributes an unusual mixture of pathos and eerie amusement.
In 2019 Badger graduated with Honours in Fine Art at Queensland College of Art and in 2017 from National Art School with a Bachelor of Fine Art. Solo exhibitions include Scrapbook Quadrangle at Sure Studio 2022, Divine Clutter at The Third Quarter Gallery in 2020 and Umbra at Open House Gallery. As well as her solo exhibitions, Badger has participated in group shows such as Botanics at Gala Galley and Boiling Point at the Third Quarter Gallery. Alongside her studio practice, Badger works as an artist assistant, runs an art studio space and contributes her artwork to an array of human rights publications including Court of Conscience. She has also created large scale mural works in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
