2024 - 2026

Tara Denny, (Naarm/ Melbourne) is a sculptor working with bronze, aluminium, wax and the thrifted to materialise her own personal mythologies. Denny's practice uses feminist methodologies to resist the cultural erasure of women’s work, cementing entropic experiences of love and the bittersweet pull of fantastical realities into objects of great permanence. Evoking long traditions of oral histories passed between women, the archaic materials used in her practice act as a tribute to the latent unknowability of feminine experience, suggesting wide rifts of loss and amnesia. Works arrive already broken into fragments and ripe with decay, as though resurfacing from a fallen time to finally encounter the public’s gaze. 

Tara Denny is a Melbourne (Naarm) based artist. Current: Gertrude Contemporary Studio Residency Program, 2024-25. She graduated in (2022) at the Victorian College of Fine Arts, Melbourne University (Honours). Recent solo shows include: AirSpace, Sydney, (2023).
