Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Nell. A Sydney based jack-of-all-trades, Nell makes mixed media installation, digital work, fashion and ceramic sculpture. Her art mixes humor and rock n’ roll aesthetics to playfully subvert cultural structures. In the interview we talk about AC/DC, Buddhism and shifts in Arts funding in Australia.
