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 Ikkuna <Window> at Outerspace Gallery in 2023, Scrapbook Quadrangle at Sure Studio 2022 and Divine Clutter at The Third Quarter Gallery in 2020. As well as her solo exhibitions, Badger has participated in group shows such as Mutual Intent at Brisbane Powerhouse 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 publications such as Archer Magazine and Court of Conscience. She has also created large scale mural works in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
