Australia, b. 1969
Sally Marsland completed an honours degree in Fine Arts, Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT in 1996 before studying under professor Otto Künzli at the Munich Academy of Fine Art.
Sally’s approach to making encompasses a wide range of materials and technique; and an instinctive process, saying: “I try to keep my eyes open and not do anything that makes my teeth hurt.” Sally won the Herbert Hofmann Prize in 2002 and the Colin and Cicely Rigg Contemporary Design Award in 2006.
Marsland has had 6 solo exhibitions at Funaki and has exhibited internationally since 1997. Her work is held in numerous public collections, including the NGV (Melbourne) the NGA (Canberra) Die Neue Sammlung (Munich), Museum für Angewandte Kunst (Frankfurt), Musée des Arts décoratifs (Paris) and the Stedlijk Museum (Amsterdam).
