Minaal Lawn — Knuckle Stack 16 Sculpture in Purple, Green and Blue
The Knuckle Stack with its simple permutations represent the bodily form of a life lived. Each Stack a combination of preexisting ideas and beliefs, of cultural stories owned as the expression of a single entity. The plasticity and possibilities of culture and history never diminishing an individuals' ability to choose their own narrative.
Minaal Lawn is a contemporary artist working in ceramics based in Glenlyon/Dja Dja Wurrung, Central Victoria. She makes intimate, domestic scale ceramic works that celebrate the reconciliation of her Indian heritage with her Australian upbringing. Her work explores cultural identity, through abstracted forms, and a language of colour. She references object symbolism, revisits childhood stories and her experience of living between two different cultures to ultimately celebrate their reconciliation.
Minaal has held solo exhibitions throughout Australia and had her work included in Future Inheritance for the NGV Melbourne Design Week, 2021. She has been a finalist for numerous awards and collaborated with designers to create in-store installations and product specific works.
