Suvira McDonald, Ceramic & Mixed Media Artist, Goonengerry Australia
Multi facetted Suvira McDonald is an award-winning Australian artist who may be found working in the forested hinterland of Byron Bay in northern NSW, Australia. His contemporary ceramic art constantly seeks new modes of expression; in his hands clay takes myriad forms. The large elemental constructed forms that find placement as garden sculpture, his unique ceramic landscapes, functional ceramics such as urns, platters, vases and the everyday coffee mug find uncommon form and excellence in his ceramic studio.

What does it take to put on a successful show.

it helps to have a team around you that are willing to give it all and for very little.

 

 

With vast experience as site curator for a number of sculpture shows I can offer the following services:

Site inspection - if you would like to purchase a sculpture for the home or business I will inspect the site in the home or your business and in consultation with you the buyer will make some suggestions as to the type of sculpture that would be appropriate. I will analyse the site for the installation of the sculpture.

Artist Liaison - through a vast network of sculptors working in a huge variety of media I will be able to find the right sculpture. After in-depth consultation with you the client I will gather information and images of a number of artists and their works in order to facilitate the final purchase. I will overview the installation and ongoing maintenance protocol.

Maintenance and conservation – I can offer my experience in order to revitalise sandstone, wood and metal sculptures and find the right person for the right job. On site, if possible, or in the studio.

Dev Lengjel- all things sculpture


Sculpture is an ancient medium that has been used as a way of expressing ones beliefs and convictions as demonstrated by Sculptors in their works in ancient monuments for heroes, potentates and saints, as well as in contemporary public art.

It defines a place, can be community building or disappear with out a trace.

With the architecture of ancient civilisations reduced to ruins and their paintings lost without a trace sculpture has assumed a position as the art par excellence.

It offers the most objective evidence we have of mans power over the world.

While painting is apt to be travestied by time, sculpture more easily retains its original form and more often remains in the place for which it was made.

Could we imagine Florence without David or Melbourne without its Gateway? or living with out Giacometti's abstract figures or Andy Goldsworthy ephemeral installations?

Whether renaissance marble or contemporary public art, sculpture can provoke, but also enlighten, it can make you laugh and cry, it can make you marvel at the artistry, sneer with contempt or even leave you feeling vey little.

It celebrates a moment in time or just delights through form and beauty.
