Catherine Asquith Gallery is delighted to announce its participation in Art Stage Singapore in January 2013 at which it will be showcasing the very unique sculptural work of Melbourne-based artist, Melanie Fitzmaurice.

Melanie Fitzmaurice is an Australian Artist living and working in rural Victoria, Australia. Melanie completed her Bachelor of Arts (Visual) with Honours, majoring in Sculpture at the Australian National University, School of Art, Canberra, in 2007. As a recipient of travel scholarships awarded by The Royal Over-Seas League, London, The Freedman Foundation, Sydney and Saksala Art Radius, Haukivuori, Fitzmaurice has partaken in residencies based in regional Scotland (2008) and Finland (2011).

In September 2011 Melanie was represented at the Korea International Art Fair (KIAF/11) in Seoul, South Korea.

In 2012 Melanie was invited to participate in the Freedman Foundation Alumni Exhibition; was a Finalist in the Sunshine Contemporary Art Prize (QLD, Australia), the Newport Substation Contemporary Prize (Vic, Australia) and the “Director’s Cut” of the Blake Prize (NSW, Australia).

As a sculptor Melanie is fascinated by the fundamental role that our bodies play in our understanding of space, movement, communication and identity. The human body appears throughout her work, or is referred to through objects, garments and helmets. Beginning in 2011, Melanie’s ongoing project entitled Head Above Water, is based on the helmet’s potential to represent “mind space”.
