Geoffrey Bartlett is regarded as one of Australia’s most successful and important sculptors. He is widely known for both his studio-based sculptures and major public and corporate commissions, working predominately within the language of abstraction.
Bartlett has undertaken public sculpture commissions for the National Gallery of Victoria, the City of Auckland, the City of Melbourne, the City of Newcastle, the Australian National University and Melbourne Docklands. He is represented in the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Parliament House Art Collection, Heide Museum of Modern Art and in many regional, university, corporate and private collections.
Since the early 1970’s, Bartlett has been developing his sculptural form, honing down the essence of fluidity and tension present in his works, and further revealing and enhancing the striking amalgam of textures and materials that characterise his evocative structures.
