April Matera’s work evokes the playfulness of a child. During her studies at Monash she has explored numerous media; from conventional forms like photography and film, to unconventional forms like dolls, grass, play dough and papier mâché. In each case April’s work aims to suggest the dreams and imagination we all once had. She reminds us that it is okay to hold onto some aspects of our childhood. And invites others to step back for a moment and reminisce about those days, to rediscover the colourful world around us and appreciate the simple things in life.
