Bio:

Narelle Desmond is a multidisciplinary visual artist, a member of DAMP art collective, a graphic designer and an arts educator who currently lives and works in Melbourne

Narelle’s solo practice explores the physical properties of a broad range of materials through an examination of objects. Through aesthetic and conceptual considerations of object making, she considers how the function of objects can be manipulated and the broader context of materials themselves.
