Marilyn McGrath

sculpture

1 – 26 August 2020

Marilyn McGrath was born in Sydney in 1939 and has been exhibiting since 1972. Using mostly traditional materials including marble, bronze, and solid wood, her works can be found in a number of important public collections such as The Art Gallery of New South Wales, Newcastle City Art Gallery and Queensland Art Gallery

McGrath lived in the regional city of Newcastle north of Sydney for many years and has a number of large scale public works around the city such as Wheeler Place Plaza and The University of Newcastle

My central artistic concern has been to communicate sculptural images, which evoke a sense of strength and timelessness out of volume and form

My interest is in the composition of the piece, using different design techniques to intensify the visual impact of the sculpture but still achieving a connection with the viewer. I spend about same amount of time making a small marquette of my idea as I do to making the final enlarged sculpture

With the lockdown I made smaller sculptures, on the dinning room table which are in my collection of sculptures currently on display at Robin Gibson Gallery

Marilyn has been exhibiting with Robin Gibson Gallery Sydney since 1981, and currently lives and works between Sydney and Melbourne
