Bufardeci has always been interested in how statistics are able to succinctly portray a picture of the world at large. Her work draws equal attention to inequity and diversity around the world, covering topics such as the mix of different religions in Sydney (on now at the MCA), to the direction of international aid funding for developing countries (Team Joy, shown above), to population movements (Ground Plan, below centre).
The artist’s works use playful, naive colour pallette, yet the colours often depict portray sobering statistics. The audience gets the sense they are but a grain in the sand that is global population, and the anonymity is both liberating and overwhelming.
