‘robbie’ was exhibited in Gary Deimendjian’s solo show ‘a prevailing sense of disquiet’ in November of 2018. He is a sharp observer of the present, finding pockets of unsettling beauty through different forms, including sculpture, installation, photographs and video work. ‘robbie’ is a testament to Deirmendjian’s consummate sculpting skills as well as his gentle yet unflinching treatment of the human figure. Artist and critic John Adair describes his works as “a poetic response; often dark, melancholic, but not without hope.”
Gary Deirmendjian has exhibited extensively across Australia and has received notable awards and commissions for both private and public artworks across the world. He has been invited to exhibit in Sculpture by the Sea, Contour 556 and on the Wynscreen at Wynyard Station on numerous occasions. Deirmendjian has also been asked to judge public art awards himself, most recently the FIVEX Art Prize.
