Fleur Rendell

Artist’s Statement

Fleur Rendell is an artist printmaker who lives in the Warby Ranges. Her linocuts are thoughtful explorations into the relationships we have with the objects that surround us. Bold, clean lines outline familiar shapes in such a way as they become symbolic; iconic, each object alive with a distinct mood and character.

I find inspiration in the everyday; a honeyeater alighting a branch, a grevillea leaf about to unfurl or a kitchen shelf with an arrangement of cook books, tea caddies and canisters. Through my work I hope to celebrate and fully appreciate those beautiful, ordinary moments.

Rendell trained at RMIT and at the Australian Print Workshop. In 2008 and 2010 she was short-listed for the Silk Cut Award. In 2008 she won The Wangaratta Jazz Art Award. Her works are held in many collections, including the National Gallery of Australia.
