Shona Nunan

Shona Nunan, artist-sculptor, born in 1959, in Melbourne, has long studied the visual languages of ancient cultures including in Europe and Asia. These influences have seriously influenced her art, as did her connection to aboriginal art during her early years in outback Australia where her artist father took the family to live. Her work is about the earth and our belonging to it.

While Shona’s most consistent medium is bronze, she begins with plaster, quickly modelling and then laboriously carving and weaving this into her forms. The themes of her work are archetypal: the Warrior representing the strong, the brave and the humble, noble and self-sacrificial, also the destroyer of the old.

Having exhibited nationally and internationally, in the last few years she has been engaged in studio work, commissions for collectors and project work.

Shona Nunan and her artist husband Michael-Francis Cartwright have studios in Provence, Tuscany and Australia and have two sons who are both sculptors.
