Robyn Gordon is a Sydney based, multi-disciplinary artist who works with a wide variety of materials and techniques. Through body adornment in particular, Robyn has established a meaningful dialogue between maker, wearer and observer, creating jewellery/wearable art with elements of fantasy and the unexpected, using the body as a gallery.
Gordon interprets & depicts relationships in the environment, highlighting the beauty, delicacy and extreme vulnerability of ecological systems. Forms may be realistic, emblematic or almost abstract.
Since 1980, her work has been regularly exhibited throughout Australia, as well as in Great Britain, France, Spain, Germany, USA, New Zealand, Japan, Korea and China. Her work is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, as well as state, territory and regional galleries and many corporate and private collections. She has received several awards for her work and undertaken numerous commissions including design for contemporary dance, sculptural installations, silkscreen prints, and costume and set design and has had a long career in teaching as well as serving as a member of the Australian Government's task force in Education and The Arts.
This artist's unique visual language records suspended images, cultural tokens, historical sites and environmental adornments, combining these elements in her strikingly original works. Gordon has exhibited widely throughout Australia and internationally and her work is held in numerous public and private collections including the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney and the National Gallery of Australia.
