The Substation/ Artist/​Peter Waples-Crowe/

Peter Waples-Crowe is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice explores the intersection of an Indigenous queer identity, spirituality, and Australia’s ongoing colonisation.

Influenced by his adoption and a later reconnection with his Ngarigo heritage, Peter’s art comments on the world as a contested site for his multiple identities. Referencing many disparate ideas and themes, his work is auto-ethnographic by nature, and largely based on personal experiences. He works across moving image, collage, painting, mixed-media, fashion and ceramics.
