Naomi Hobson’s ceramic work is currently featured in the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition, Portrait Identity 23.

Portrait23: Identity is a major exhibition of new work by eminent contemporary Australian artists and collectives working in every state and territory. Moving eloquently across street art, textiles, performance, photography, ceramics, painting, drawing, soft sculpture and bronze, it is an exhibition of portraiture, but not as you know it.

Naomi’s series of ceramic works, The Love Story of the Little River Rock Cod and the Red Kangaroo, addresses the powerful and ancient links between Country and identity.
