Sue Lorraine

Australia, b.1955

Sue Lorraine is an Adelaide based artist who has established an artistic practice spanning over 30 years. Completing a Diploma of Art and Design at PIT (now Latrobe University) in 1979, Lorraine has gone on to exhibit both locally and internationally and help establish the renowned Gray Street Workshop with Catherine Truman and Anne Brennan.  She was the Creative Director of the Metal Design Studio at the Jam Factory, Adelaide from 1999 to 2008 and is now an Arts Development Officer at Arts South Australia. Working predominately with blackened mild steel, Lorraine focuses on the natural environment through the notion of the museum specimen and the ways in which nature is ordered and curated in this particular context.
