ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Simone Eisler is a Brisbane/Sunshine Coast based artist and has exhibited her work internationally in the Philippines, Indonesia, New York, Belgium, Paris, Berlin and within Australia. Her work is focused on space, time, form and structure and she moves from large scale sculptural multimedia installations through performative photographic works to individual sculptural objects that reference concepts of physical transformation, species evolution and biodiversity within the overarching notion of a changing technological and natural world. Her practice also covers drawing, painting, video and sound and she is well known for a wide range of public art works.

Whilst her broader art practice (from fine art gallery practice to public art practice) deals with the idea of physical and natural transformation, her public art practice is first and foremost site specific. It is inspired by the natural and urban aesthetic elements of the site, as well as drawing on the site's function and historical past. There is a balance between robust materials and a sense of elegance and beauty. She work's with patterning and form enhanced by lighting but also offers an artwork that says something about the social use of place. During the last 14 years Eisler has completed a wide variety of public artwork including permanent and temporary activations within parks and gardens, urban pedestrian corridors and streetscapes and bridge under crofts. She aims to create iconic works.
