LONE STAR

Main Gallery & Small Object Space
2 November – 16 February

For almost half a century, significant Australian artist Mona Ryder has challenged us with her exploration into relationships, memory and gendered rituals. Free from constraint, she has crafted a dynamic body of work through a prolific and playful experimentation with her subject matter.

Every element is of her hand: from the mussel shells preserved from meals shared with friends to scarlet stockings borne of Mona’s backyard dye pot to the furniture and objects she fashions, each piece shares a deeply personal story. Touchingly, Lone Star also explores Mona’s recent grief. Artisan is honoured to host this timely exhibition by an internationally regarded artist.
