Glenlyon based artist Minaal Lawn (b.1977) makes intimate, domestic scale ceramic objects that celebrate the reconciliation of her Indian heritage with her Australian upbringing. Her work examines the transformation from an inherited culture, revisiting childhood stories and object symbolism, to one that is owned.
Minaal has been included in Australian shows Clunes Ceramic Awards (finalist, 2019), The Du Rietz Art Awards (finalist, 2019), The Wyndham Art Prize (finalist, 2019), Saint Cloche Gallery (Little Things Art Prize finalist, 2018). She has held solo shows at ArtBox (Merricks, 2019) and Happy Melon Studios (Prahran, 2018). She has been included in group shows CLAD Gallery (2020) and Red Gallery (2019). She has collaborated with fashion brands Radical Yes (2019, 2018) and Nelson (2018) to create in-store installations and product specific works. Her work is available to purchase through exhibition, Mr Kitly and Stockroom Kyneton
