Kari Lee McInneny-McRae, An empty pause (2) (2019)
- Edition of unique
Kari Lee McInneny-McRae is a Melbourne-based artist, predominantly working with sculptural materials. Her work considers the way that materials can be in a state of flux, whilst paralleling the way that memories change over time. Memory is reconstructed in her art through a myriad of imagery, voice, textures, sounds and sculptures, that come together in a space like a fragmented script or a collage on paper. Objects investigate how her own memories can be solidified into physical form. The abstraction of something intangible such as memory into an actual sculpture is a way of exploring how memory warps with time. Physical performance and spoken word are new areas being intertwined with Kari’s practice to further investigate underlying narratives. McInneny-McRae holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Drawing from Victorian College of the Arts, a Bachelor of Fine Art in Ceramics from RMIT and Bachelor of first class Fine Art in Honours at Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. She has shown her work in multiple galleries across Melbourne including Craft Victoria, McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park and various artists run initiatives.
