About

Studio shot

 

Fleur is a Melbourne based artist whose practice incorporates textiles, large and small scale sculptural installation, assemblage, printmaking and mixed media work. She is interested in surface texture, the layering of imagery and the movement between two and three dimensions. Fleur's studio sits on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation whose elders past, present and emerging are acknowledged and respected as well as the aboriginal people who have a deep connection to this place and continue to create on and contribute and care for this land.

Current Ideas within her work explore issues of female identity with a reframing of normative labelling and stereotypes. Other themes include surveillance and technology, homelessness and asylum, impermanence, death and loss. Fleur is interested in ‘the tribe’ whether it is a group of football fans, a shared cultural heritage or a gender grouping.

After completing honours in Sculpture at RMIT thirteen years ago her work has been exhibited widely around Australia including in the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award, The Heysen Prize for Landscape (South Australia), Sculpture at Scenic World in the Blue Mountains, Lorne Sculpture Biennale, Footscray Art Prize (Victoria), Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize and the Fisher's Ghost Art Awards (Sydney), Bay of Fires Art Prize (Tasmania) and Victorian Craft Awards.
