Located next door to the Fiona Lynch studio on Glasshouse Road, Work Shop is a concept space that will present a curated selection of ‘experimental design, fine art, and objects from leading Australian and international artists and designers’, tells Fiona.
After initially studying Fine Art at RMIT before going into the field of interior design, having an art space to support the work of leading local and international creatives has been a long-term dream of Fiona’s. ‘This unique path has always been reflected in my work and the way we approach design,’ the interior designer explains, ‘Work Shop will afford my studio and I the opportunity to explore this further, identifying commonalities across mediums and materials, and examining the dialogue between art and design in a way that challenges and inspires.’
The inaugural Work Shop exhibition sees a selection of artists from across the world come together to react against the age of instant gratification, highlighting the beauty of the entire creative process – not just the final outcome. Ideas to Intuition features works from New York-based lighting designer Mary Wallis, contemporary Australian artists Makiko Ryujin and Jiaxin Nong, and British porcelain artist Olivia Walker exhibited alongside original designs from Fiona’s studio.
Work Shop will launch to the public on Thursday this week to coincide with the opening of the Melbourne Design Week program.
