Ember Fairbairn – Recent Works
1 June – 5 July 2021
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Being born and living in Australia, any work referencing land and place will invariably evoke the complex issues surrounding place in all the ways in which it is currently unresolved in a socio-political context, which the artist seeks to address and contemplate. It is the artists desire, that making art through abstracted painting, she can be part of a conceptual meeting point to create positive change in the way in which we relate to place as part of ourselves and land as a living essence.
Born in Melbourne in 1975, Ember Fairbairn has based herself primarily in Melbourne and Queensland, satisfying her love of contemporary culture and the need to be immersed in remote parts of nature. Fairbairn’s practice focuses primarily on painting. She holds a Master of Contemporary Art from VCA, University of Melbourne.
Her exhibiting history spans from 2001 in both solo and group shows in artist run spaces and commercial galleries in Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore and New York. Awards include the gogo Art Series Award (2019), the At150 Travelling Scholarship (2019), The Ravenswood Art prize for women (Finalist), the Start emerging Art programme in the 2012 Affordable Art fair Melbourne. Residencies include Montsalvat Art Centre and Yea Arts Festival. She is housed in both public and private collections including St Vincent’s hospital Sydney public art collection and Harmony of the Seas cruise ship collection.
