Wednesday 28 August, 1–2pm, Black Theatre

Merryn Hull is a Sydney-based artist working across painting, installation, sculpture and the photographic. Her work is concerned with the assembling of diverse ideas, philosophies and materials to explore the idea of transformation. Merryn’s practice focuses on the idea of a moment in the viewer-artwork encounter that the viewer experiences as something that has not-yet but is about-to-happen. The significance of this moment rests in its potential to insinuate social and ‘political’ consequences in three-dimensional artworks. It is by showing that transformation is possible that these assemblage sculptures evoke the experience of dislocated perceptions and different ways of seeing and understanding the contemporary world.

Merryn has recently completed a PhD at the Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle and spent six years at the National Art School where she undertook a BFA(Hons) and MFA in Painting.
