BIO

 

Natalie Lavelle is an emerging artist whose practice wavers between human and material concerns where abstraction and monochrome paintings have become the foundation of a personal pursuit to re-blur the limitations and boundaries of the traditional easel painting. Natalie has completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours, Class I) from Queensland College of Art (QCA) in 2020 and a Diploma of Visual Art from Southbank Institute of Technology (SBIT) in 2016.

In addition to her studio practice, Lavelle engages in large scale installation wall paintings and outdoor mural projects. She has been artist and studio assistant to major Brisbane and interstate artists whom she contributes her expertise to large mural projects including Fish Lane public art for Integrity 20 in 2019, Queensland Rail projects and the Brisbane W Hotel in 2018, QCA’s Webb Gallery walkway in 2017 and the Brisbane Festival in 2016. In 2019 Lavelle was commissioned by Queensland Children’s Hospital to paint a sixty-meter wall painting for their Oncology walkway.

Lavelle continues solo and group exhibitions throughout Brisbane at a variety of institutions and galleries some of which include: ‘Deliberate Pictures’ at Jan Manton Gallery (2020), ‘Flatform’ at Grey Street Gallery, QCA (2020), ‘Materiality, Agency and the Body’ at Webb Gallery, QCA (2019), ‘Dark Nuance’ at The Third Quarter (2018), ‘Nobody Wants To Leave This Party’ at QCA Galleries (2018) and ‘Expanded’ at Pop Gallery (2018). In 2018 she was awarded The Zonta Club Brisbane River Acquisitive Prize, Griffith University, Brisbane. In 2020 she was awarded the overall winner of the ABSTRACTION exhibition judged by Andrew Baker, Art Dealer. Lavelle is represented by Jan Manton Gallery, Qld.
