Introducing Finkelstein Gallery artist, Louise Paramor. Louise Paramor is well known for her large-scale public art commissions, which often combine formal concerns with a pop-inspired sensibility. Recent commissions include Panorama Station, Peninsula Link Freeway, Melbourne (2012), and Feeling Machines, Bowden Main Park, Adelaide (2016). Louise has regularly exhibited her work nationally and internationally since 1988, and has been awarded several grants and international residencies including an Australia Council Fellowship at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, 1999-2000. In 2010 she won the prestigious McClelland Sculpture Survey and Award with her piece Top Shelf.
Recently the National Gallery of Victoria invited the artist to take over a dedicated space of The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia with a specially commissioned installation involving a series of new paper sculptures that reference her earlier artistic practice, in conjunction with a survey of her recent colourful plastic assemblages. The exhibition, Palace of the Republic, took place from 17 November 2017 until 18 March 2018.
