Poplin is an Artist/Educator. Her creative work examines the rapid cross-fertilization in the arts in the digital age, which extends preconceived notions of screen-based culture. Currently, her research focus is visual culture and new symbolism in 21st Century China.
Since the early 90’s her professional experience has witnessed the shift from analogue to digital. She has seen involvement with a variety of hybridised art forms and new media presentations of works both in Melbourne, Sydney, Hobart and offshore in China. Poplin has exhibited, curated, collaborated and project managed shows with many artists and has also been awarded grants and research residencies for her own work. In 2005 she was accepted into Red Gate Gallery’s residency program in Beijing and made digital collages that used the kangaroo spirit in the Chinese landscape. She has been published in a book documenting Contemporary Art in China “Contemporary Art Studio” through Hunan Fine Arts Publishing House 2008.
