Lorenna is a sculptural artist living in West Perth. Lorenna’s work is an expanding inquiry into creating sculptural/experiential moments where art, nature, and humanity fuse. Her primary motivations are to do with ephemera and site specificity. Lorenna explains that her works are often metaphors, intended as physical manifestations of transience, transformation, migrational flows and instinctual pathways, and that these are seen in themes of containers, such as pods, nests, cocoons, water, and birds. Educated in Perth, Lorenna has spent timing both creating solo projects and on scholarships interstate and in Europe. She has also created many, many works, both commissioned and personal projects, in galleries and public spaces throughout the state. Lorenna has been a lecturer at TAFE, Edith Cowan university and UWA.
We met and spoke to Lorenna at her home. After our chat, she gave us a delightful tour of her personally sculpted garden, intentionally designed to protect and encourage the local banjo frog population.
