Naomi Oliver is an emerging visual artist based in NSW, Australia.
During her Fine Arts degree, Naomi Oliver concentrated on electronic arts and has maintained an art practice based on combining digital and analog mediums, such as video, coding, animation, and sound. Her work investigates chance outcomes in converging technologies and the intentional creation of image distortion through various means. She often achieves glitched visual abstraction, attempting to embody the intersection of technology and the human hand/mind. Through a laborious trial and error process, Oliver corrupts image files just enough to transform them visually while still retaining the information needed for the file to remain viewable in some form.
Oliver has exhibited consistently in national and international exhibitions and art festivals since completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (First Class Honours) at Western Sydney University in 2003. In 2020, her work achieved Highly Commended in the Fisher’s Ghost Art Award at Campbelltown Arts Centre, and in 2015, she received the Peacock Gallery & Auburn Arts Studio Residency and Mentorship Award. She contributed to Vivid Sydney projects from 2017-19. In late 2022 Oliver was Artist in Residence at Woodford Academy, and her project has been nominated for an IMAGinE Award.
