Glass, bronze and ceramics
NOT is a self-taught artist working primarily in glass and ceramic. As a member of claypool and with training at Gymea TAFE, the artist’s ceramic installations were first publicly shown at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery in the group exhibition Glazed & Confused (2014–15), and, most recently, with Kronenberg Mais Wright in Sydney. In late 2016, NOT began working with Canberra Glassworks to produce a new series of installations made from hand-etched lead crystal and recycled TV screens, including Song dynasty and TV screen Buddha, which, in 2017, was shortlisted for the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. Mid-2018 saw the artist’s solo presentation of Song dynasty at Kronenberg Mais Wright, and the group show Confluence at Canberra Glassworks. In September 2018, NOT’s The China syndrome was a finalist in the Hindmarsh Prize, with the work exhibited at the prestigious Toyama Glass Art Museum in Japan. In May 2019, the artist’s mixed-media installation Reliqui was included in the Australian Ceramics Triennale exhibition Manifest curated by Damon Moon in Hobart. In late 2019, NOT’s work was curated into River on the Brink: inside the Murray-Darling Basin at Sydney’s S.H. Ervin Gallery, and was shortlisted for the biennial Still: National Still Life Award at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery.
