Melbourne, 23 May 2019: The Clayton Utz Art Partnership has launched its third Melbourne exhibition, featuring contemporary Australian artists Lottie Consalvo and Miranda Skoczek.
The Melbourne exhibition complements the Sydney Clayton Utz Art Partnership exhibition which is in its fourth iteration, currently featuring artists Neil Frazer and Telly Tu'u.
Over 130 Clayton Utz people and guests attended the exhibition launch at 333 Collins Street on 16 May, where they viewed the 39 unique artworks on display in the reception area and meeting rooms on level 18.
In a Q&A with the artists, they discussed the inspiration for their work and how they approach the creative process.
Earlier Melbourne exhibitions have featured the work of artists Heidi Yardley and Rhys Lee and Jon Cattapan and Dane Lovett.
The Clayton Utz Art Partnership is an innovative and industry-first collaboration between Clayton Utz and established and emerging artists, featuring new artists and their works every six months.
Clayton Utz Deputy Chief Executive Partner Bruce Cooper said: "The Art Partnership is just one of the many ways we are creating unique experiences for our clients. And this partnership captures how we celebrate the work of local artists and explore the synergies between the legal and arts industries."
The Clayton Utz Art Partnership is managed and curated by 3:33 Art Projects.
Lottie Consalvo is a Newcastle-based artist, originally from Melbourne. Lottie works across painting, performance and video to explore psychological shifts. Ideas surrounding desire, longing and the imaginary are present throughout her practice.
In 2018, Lottie had her first solo museum exhibition at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Victoria. Her work has been exhibited internationally, most recently in Mexico and New Zealand.
Miranda Skoczek is a process-driven painter. Her works are the result of automatic and physical expressions. She captures dualities, specifically the beautiful and the ugly, nature and culture, the tensions between the real and ideal.
Miranda has exhibited her paintings and collages internationally as well as throughout Australia in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
