Sculpture Exhibition

This year’s sculpture exhibition is shaping up to be one of the best! Deborah Halpern, an internationally renowned sculptor will be judging the artwork as well as exhibiting one of her sculptures.

Deborah Halpern is one of Australia’s most celebrated sculptors, known for her wildly colourful mosaic work.

Creator of many of Melbourne’s most loved public sculptures, Halpern’s works exude an innate vitality and alluring simplicity. Spontaneous in form, her creatures are painted in a style that recalls visions of Gaudi, Picasso and the playful surrealism of French sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle, yet all have become distinctly Halpernesque in their ability to delight and surprise.

Halpern is a multi-disciplinary artist who explores the mediums of sculpture, painting, pottery, glass blowing and printmaking. Her work can be exuberant and whimsical but is also imbued with a deep artistry.

Deborah’s sculpture, Family, will be on exhibition on our site. “Family,” is a celebration of these timeless bonds that define and enrich our human experience.
