Caitlin Hackett - 18 Lives

Warning: Contains nudity.

Hybridity is the law of nature in the visceral, organic artworks of Caitlin Hackett. We featured her in 2012, but she has been busy in the years since, producing visionary paintings and illustrations of humans and animals embroiled in rituals of sacrifice and rebirth. As roots and fungus sprout from dying bodies, Hackett breaks down the imagined boundaries between all living things, thereby exposing the eternal co-relation between life and death.
