Best known for casting the insides of condemned buildings, the English born artist, Rachel Whiteread, who was the first woman to win the Turner Prize in 1993, also has a knack for small scale works. Assembling seemingly random pieces of resin, wood, plaster, pigment and steel, Whiteread creates unexpectedly lovely shelf-sized sculptures that are so deceptively simple you might just think, ‘My kid could do that’.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
