Mignon Steele paints from the place where human strangeness and the natural world intersect; from where environmental anxiety and relentless optimism collide. Her paintings and assemblages, AKA Exploded Paintings, express an abstract reverence for biological and geological systems at work.

Based in the Illawarra, Steele has recently exhibited in Sydney and Thirroul and is currently in residency at the Soft Landing recycling plant, her studio surrounded by thousands of mattresses, white-goods, bottles and cans. Her ongoing collaborative practice with Morgen Figgis as the multidisciplinary duo Barnacle Studio sees her expand into site-specific painting, architectural colour, community projects and festival design.
