Linde Ivimey: Sculpture - Art Collector

5 December 2012 | “I equip my sculptures with what a parent gives a child: substance and a reason to go forward,” explains Linde Ivimey in the new publication Linde Ivimey: Sculpture.

Published at the same time as her solo exhibition
If pain persists at the University of Queensland Art Museum, it is the first monograph on Ivimey’s life and work.

The hardback coffee table book includes over 140 illustrations. Written by Louise Martin-Chew it traces the emotional ups and downs of the artist’s life and the way these events have fed into the emotional intensity of her work – from her early days squatting in Sydney, to being a nanny for Antony Gormley’s children (Gormley in part inspired her turn to fine art), her failed relationship with Bruce Armstrong, which inspired her Bunny and Owl works, and her recent trip to Antarctica, which fuelled her latest body of work.

The book includes 140 illustrations from across the span of her career as well as a DVD with a video interview with the artist.

Linde Ivimey: Sculpture is published by the University of Queensland Art Museum. Her solo exhibition continues at the museum until 24 March 2013.
