Higher Thought Forms
12 March to 31 March 2019
Wanda Gillespie’s created artefacts are often claimed to be tools in spiritual/religious practice. Imagined gurus and guides show a path of imagined or potential enlightenment. The exhibition includes a series of highly detailed sculptural works that reference the abacus and perhaps offer us the ability to calculate and understand on a deepr level that which is undefined.
Wanda Gillespie completed her BFA at Elam 2003 and MFA at the Victoria College of the Arts, Melbourne in 2009. Her work is held in both public and private collections. Gillespie has been placed in various awards as well as winning the Victorian College of the Arts Vulcan Steel Tutorship Award in 2009 and the ARTAND Australia Credit Suisse Private Banking Contemporary Art Award. She has been awarded residencies at Artspace Sydney, Art Gallery of NSW, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris residency and the Asialink residency in Indonesia.
