Mandy Smith

‘Light in the Darkness 2 / ‘Banksia’

Artist and photographer Mandy Smith is a Barkindji Woman born and raised in Mildura, Victoria. As a teenager, she developed an affinity for photography and returned to the medium in 2019, quickly garnering attention for her work.

Smith’s practice sees her working across diverse subjects, from intimate portraiture to works that connect with the Australian landscape, capturing the beauty of the bushland and native wildlife near her home. There’s a sense of strength and acknowledgment in her work, connection, and care for Country.

'Light in the Darkness 2 / 'Banksia' is part of the Home Art Collection

At Home, we believe in the power of art. The Home Art Collection is created to enrich our spaces and the lives of our residents. Featuring the diverse stories and perspectives of emerging and established Australian artists, the collection includes painting, sculpture, photography, and digital art both commissioned and acquired. Designed to create moments of reflection, beauty, and inspire curiosity and conversation, the Home Art Collection, like a well-curated home, will grow and evolve over time.
Located in some of Melbourne and Sydney’s most desirable neighbourhoods, our expanding portfolio of rental communities gives us a platform to build a unique Australian collection. Developed by Home and our curatorial collaborator Craft, the Home Art Collection will be supported by a dynamic in-building art program that will include artist talks, events, masterclasses, and workshops.
