About

Jodi Stewart has been painting for over 25 years and recently graduated from the National Art School, Sydney, majoring in sculpture. Her recent sculptural work has focused on using draped ceramic forms that are symbolic of spirit and flesh. The visual attraction of the flowing curves invite touch and compel the viewers gaze to trace the lyrical lines of the sculpture, emphasising the sensuality of the material and form.

Stewart is the current recipient of a two and a half year artists residency at Clifton Pugh’s ‘Dunmoochin’, a 20 acre bush property in Victoria. The solitude and silence of the bush, as well as the luxury of time to spend immersed in her work, is allowing a rapid evolution of her unique ceramic sculptures, and a reinvigoration of her drawing and painting.

Stewart's paintings and drawings have been selected for some of Australia’s most prestigious art prizes, such as the Portia Geach, the Shirley Hannan and the Adelaide Perry, while her sculptures have been finalists in the Tom Bass Sculpture Prize, the Kingaroy Sculpture Prize, Nillumbik Prize, Manning Prize and the Alice Prize
