Marion Borgelt

Marion Borgelt has exhibited extensively in national and international survey exhibitions and is one of Australia’s most evocative and enduring contemporary artists. Her work is represented in all major Australian museums and numerous regional, university and corporate collections throughout Australia and overseas.

In her practice she is drawn to the fundamental shapes of the circle, the crescent, the sphere, the spiral, the oval and the grid. Diverse as her practice is, there is a common thread in her work—the interplay of polarities—the organic and the man-made, light and shade, the conceptual and the sensual, the cosmic and the primordial, the micro-cosmic and macrocosmic. Her dynamic is derived from the shifting balance of dualities.
