Michael Mandelc, Australian Artist


Michael Mandelc is an internationally-collected artist whose career spans over two decades. He initially learnt technique and his approach to sculpture from two of Henry Moore's assistants, Alan Ingham and Stephen Walker O.A. His language was developed within the atelier and near the furnace, though is driven by the natural world. Michael Mandelc currently works out of his studio situated at the edge of World Heritage listed National Park in the Blue Mountains, N.S.W. Australia.

"My practice is built on a pattern of image making that aims at placing us within a deepening perspective in relation to the natural world. To do so I seek out the unseen things hidden between the layers of repetition and duplication in nature. I look to embed my work with the rhythm or pulse that connects us to everything else. This state of mind is key to a language which in articulation looks to break nature open and clothe it in it's environment.

My way is to pursue a robust delicacy that invites temporal qualities to occupy the work. In keeping with this approach, the lost wax metal casting process has formed a practical mainstay as it affords me a reliable shorthand with which to record the poetry of form in space.
