A little information about Sera Waters
Sera Waters is an Adelaide-based practicing artist and arts writer whose work is often imbued with dark meticulousness. She has spent time living in Tokyo and is a graduate of the Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours), South Australian School of Art, (1997-2000) and the Master of Arts (studies in Art History), Adelaide University (2003-2006). She has been exhibiting regularly since graduating and being selected for Hatched, the National Graduate Exhibition at PICA (Perth Institute of Contemporary Art) in 2001.

In 2006, Waters was awarded the Ruth Tuck Scholarship, which enabled her to attend the Royal School of Needlework (Hampton Court Palace, Surrey, UK) to study hand embroidery. This experience is clearly evident in Waters’ practice, which regularly explores and challenges stitched techniques. In 2009 three of Waters’ blackworks, from her Crooked Lineage explorations of petty crime, were selected to be exhibited in Talente, in the International Trade Fair, Munich. Waters is a current studio member of The Incinerator, Thebarton, and lectures and tutors in art history and theory, at Adelaide Central School of Art and the Art History program, Adelaide University, respectively.
