Geoffrey Bartlett

Geoffrey Bartlett is an established Melbourne sculptor. His public works include Obelisk (Melbourne CBD), Constellation (opposite the Casino and produced in collaboration with Bruce Armstrong), Aurora (Melbourne Docklands) and The Messenger (located in the Grollo Equiset Garden at NGV International).

In 1983 Bartlett travelled to New York on a Harkness Scholarship to undertake post graduate study at Columbia University. The two years he spent studying and working in the US were to have a significant impact on his work.

This exhibition presents over 40 works produced following Bartlett’s return to Australia in 1985. Works in the exhibition have been drawn from public, private and corporate collections.
