The 2014 Runway Artist Edition by Rosie Deacon is now available for purchase!
Rosie Deacon has been invited by the board of Runway Australian Experimental Art journal to create the organisation’s first Annual Edition. While Runway regularly commissions new artworks and writing for it’s online journal, this is the first time we have embarked on a significant commission of new work as part of Runway’s ongoing mission to support Australian experimental, emerging and under-represented artists, writers and curators.
Rosie Deacon’s practice engages with the spectacle of obsession, and realms of the absurd. Her work, joyfully employing everyday materials from synthetic eyelashes to expanding foam, jewels, glitter, stickers, sequins and clay, is combined to create large-scale fictional environments. These environments are populated by strange figurative sculptures crafted from a diverse and unabashed assortment of natural and manufactured material.
This specially commissioned new work sees Deacon make her first foray into lithographic print-making via her sculptural practice, providing an introduction to the artist for those new to her work. It is also an opportunity for emerging collectors of Australian contemporary art to purchase an affordable piece by this up-and-coming talent, while assisting Runway to continue commissioning further works in the future.
