Linda Marrinon: Figure Sculpture
11 July - 19 September 2015


A key figure in Australian contemporary art since the mid-1980s, Linda Marrinon has developed a wonderfully idiosyncratic language of figurative sculpture. This exhibition will focus on works produced over the last ten years, providing an intimate view of her expanding repertoire of historical and cultural figures, from Voltaire and Edwardian ladies to Emergency Service Worker and MC Hammer. Figure Sculpture will bring together 60 figures and busts from public and private collections, the artworks brought together for the very first time.
