Natasha Aiko Cousens creates surreal sculptural creatures that might appear to spring to life from a fairytale book.

Self-taught, Cousens studied restoration in her early twenties and diverging from the traditional crafts such as gilding, faux-finishing and encaustic tiles, she melds ceramics, beads, textiles, and mixed media to form her fantastical creatures. This is the first time her creatures have been brought together in her first solo exhibition, Let Me Tell You A Story, surveying recent work that share mythological essences, and narratives of emotion, spirituality, life and death.

Fabricating her sculptures by hand, she meticulously assembles every detail working from her home studio in Tauranga. Cousens’ animals - from field and forest - display an ethereal, poetic and quirky nature, reminiscent of wildlife imagery found in fairytales and fables across many cultures but possess a story to tell of their own.
