STUDIO TALK: Colleen Boyle

Exciting! This week marks the first of a new series on the blog called Studio Talk where I get artists and designers to talk about what goes on in their studio. Our first guest is Melbourne artist, Colleen Boyle. Colleen is clever – she was awarded a PhD from RMIT School of Art in 2016. She’s also a gifted artist having recently won a sculpture commission for the Wonderment Walk in Melbourne. I met Colleen many years ago through a tribe of connected colleagues and friends in the city I contantly pine for – Melbourne. I moved to Sydney 2.5 years ago and so have not seen Colleen’s fantastic new sculpture, Celestial Ground, installed at Docklands. But I will be making a beeline for it on my next trip south.

I asked Colleen some questions about her studio practice hoping that this talented and very busy woman might shed some light on how she does it for the rest of us.
