Bronwyn Oliver: Strange Things

Bronwyn Oliver: Strange Things is the first major publication on Australian sculptor Bronwyn Oliver. Released to coincide with the exhibition 'The Sculpture of Bronwyn Oliver' at the TarraWarra Museum of Art it not only features documentation of the artist's work but also insight into the creative process.

Born on a farm near Gum Flat in Northern New South Wales, Oliver grew up in country-town Inverell. She won the Travelling Art Scholarship to study sculpture at Chelsea Art School in London, returning to win numerous awards including the Moët & Chandon Fellowship. While many of her contemporaries began making installation art, Oliver worked within the traditional discipline of sculpture. Her organic yet strangely human sculptures are coveted by collectors for their eloquent beauty, yet the beauty of her objects comes from the thinking behind them.
