‘I transform the collected object into sculptures evoking a human narrative, revealing a strange beauty within the forgotten and discarded. The works display a wry sense of wit and humour, and play with the suggestion of physical movement or a practical function for the hitherto inanimate object.’ Anita Larkin
Anita Larkin has been making and exhibiting sculpture and felt forms since graduating from Sydney College of the Arts in 1993. Her work is featured in private and public collections. Represented by Defiance Gallery in Sydney since 2002, she continues to exhibit with them regularly in group shows and their Annual 6” Miniature Sculpture show. Larkin has held numerous solo exhibitions, including Wollongong City Gallery and at Defiance Gallery in 2009, as well as featuring in other exhibitions around Australia, such as Sculpture by the Sea, The UWS Acquisitive Sculpture Prize, The Wangarratta Contemporary Textile Award.
Larkin is available for commissions, working with your own personal collected objects or some from her studio. Works can be made for indoors or out. Larkin also teaches workshops in feltmaking and sculpture and gives lectures on her art practice and feltmaking as an artform.
