SYDNEY.- Sullivan+Strumpf announced the representation of one of Australia’s finest art practitioners working in the field of ceramics, Illawara based Lynda Draper.

Recently recognised in a landmark survey of 100 of the world’s most important clay and ceramic artists (Vitamin C ​- ​Clay and Ceramic in Contemporary Art, Phaidon 2017), Draper is known to consistently push the technical limits and conventional aesthetics of the medium.

In 2019 she was recognised with Australia’s most prestigious ceramics prize, the ​Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramic Award for her multiple-piece work ​Somnambulism, acquired by the National Gallery of Australia.

That work is included in the upcoming National Gallery of Australia exhibition, ​Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now, 14 November 2020 – 31 January 2021, and is to be featured in a major associated publication celebrating 150 Australian women artists.

An inspirational teacher, Draper is currently Head of Ceramics at the National Art School.

In making the announcement, Sullivan+Strumpf Co-Director Joanna Strumpf says, “Lynda’s magnificent and innovative ceramic sculptures are dream-like creations which seem to defy gravity. Her work takes us to another place completely, and I am so excited to share these works with our audiences.”

Of the new relationship, Draper comments, “I feel privileged to have the opportunity to be represented by Sullivan+Strumpf. So many significant artists have exhibited at the gallery over the past 15 years, who have contributed to the discourse of Contemporary Art within the Asia-Pacific. It is an arts forum where risks and alternative visions can be realised within a supportive environment. To be able to create work and exhibit at S+S is an incredible opportunity.”

Works by Lynda Draper will be included in Sullivan+Strumpf’s annual group show, Summer Annual 21, opening Thursday January 28, 2021. Her solo exhibition debut with Sullivan+Strumpf is scheduled for July.
