permanent exhibition
Mandy Gunn is a South Gippsland artist living and working at Tarwin Lower on Bunurong country.

Her art practice is notably concerned with recycled materials that she collects, cuts, weaves, and collages into extraordinary books, woven constructions and fabulous wall hangings. While she studied painting at Monash University in the 1990s and later at the Victorian College of the Arts in the early 2000s, it was weaving that informed her ideas and directed her creative direction.

A prolific artist, whose inventiveness is both pragmatic, intuitive and remarkably fluid, Gunn works across multiple mediums, using everyday materials, industrial waste, organic and synthetic ‘manmade’ detritus, including cardboard, aluminium, rubber and paper. What many consider rubbish, Gunn re-envisions and finds new ways to transform these materials into commanding works of art that hold stories about everyday life and commentaries that interweave into the way we live. With more than thirty solo exhibitions since 1995 and over 130 group shows, Mandy Gunn’s profile is significant, and her woven work has won numerous awards. As this exhibition reveals, she makes us re-think materiality and re-imagine our recycled world.
