Lil’ Familiars

Lil’ Familiars show themselves in all different ways and forms for a variety of reasons. Companion travellers that wander with Lil’ Babes and Wayfarers through the maze-like pathways of ‘The Other Place,’ they have developed to include Clairy’s own values around multiculturalism and assimilation. With a mix of Australian native fauna and introduced animals to act as a metaphor for that process, the Lil’ Familiars are posed in friendly and comforting or engaging positions, featuring large eyes and softly optimistic gazes, echoing Clairy’s optimistic with that everyone should be able to just get along. They are often a part of her more allegorical work and feature in some of her exhibitions.
