Clement Meadmore (1929 – 2005) is often described as Australia’s greatest modernist sculptor, however he is also recognised as one of our greatest artistic exports

After a long and successful career as a sculptor abroad, Clement Meadmore died in New York City on April 19, 2005. He contributed a legacy of sculpture which was collected and installed across the US, Japan, Mexico and Australi
