block party

Jeweller, writer and visual artist Meredith Turnbull is one of those makers that is constantly moving.    Cerebral and tactile, abstract and decorative she continually produced works that cleverly fuse historical forms and techniques with a thoroughly considered awareness of the implications of folk craft, modernism and hand-making on contemporary art practice and design. 

From super sized sculptures to wearable wooden blocks her eye is super keen and her output always on point. We love her work. So we're pretty excited to see this new collection of 'compositions' now on show in the newly refurbished Bus Gallery.

Turnbull fans (ourselves included) should also take advantage of Meredith's interactive Co-Workers Hanging Sculpture also on show as part of Melbourne Now.

This work was one of our favourites in the M.N megalith. No just because it focuses on scale via a range of mixed media from wall painting, abstracted 3D components and large photocopies (swoon), but because it also invites small people to play with, think about and create their own hanging sculpture with the extremely thoughtful option of either adding their finished creation to the exhibition or to take it home. Seriously brilliant stuff and highly recommended... see you there. BECK
