2014: Anne-Marie May

Work Details

Anne-Marie May
Untitled, 2014
Thermally formed acrylic
Dimensions variable
Unique State Edition of 50

The 2014 Gertrude Edition is a specially commissioned edition of thermally formed acrylic sculptures by Anne-Marie May, each one individually hand-shaped by the artist. Continuing her investigations into materiality, May transforms acrylic sheets into dynamic arrangements of interlocking curves through a process of heating and folding. The reflections cast by the sculptures’ transparent surfaces give the impression of drawings in light and space, blurring the line between two- and three-dimensional form.

May has exhibited extensively in Australia and New Zealand, with recent major curated exhibitions including Melbourne Now, NGV, Melbourne, 2013–14; Less is More, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne, 2013; and 21st Century Modern, the 2006 Biennial of Australian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia, 2006.

The work has been generously donated by Anne-Marie May and Murray White Room, Melbourne.

The 2014 Gertrude Edition has been supported by Yanni Florence.

The artist would like to thank Lucina Lane.
