With a career spanning twenty years Kylie Stillman is a Melbourne based artist who works primarily with sculptural processes. Drawing on the sewing and garment construction skills the artist learnt at a young age, Stillman’s practice explores what it means to show three-dimensional forms on a two-dimensional plane. Making use of overlooked and discarded objects, Stillman presents everyday materials such as sheets of plywood, window furnishings, furniture and books, reworking them by hand to prompt new interpretations and meaning.
Kylie Stillman completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (painting) with honours at RMIT in 1999. She have been awarded Australia Council for the Arts studio residencies in New York (2009) and Milan (2006) and been commissioned to create new work for Castlemaine State Festival (2019), Parliament House Canberra (2018), Bargoonga Nganjin City of Yarra (2017), Town Hall Gallery (2017), Hawkesbury Regional Gallery (2016), Hermés Australia (2011) and Westpac Banking Group (2010).
