Angus Gardner is an artist currently living and working in Melbourne, Victoria. Gardner is deeply curious about the spatial environment and human connection. Of particular interest to him is how we navigate and choose pathways, both physically and psychologically, and how those choices and destinations can be translated back into the studio through drawing, painting and ceramics. Gardner's two- and three-dimensional visual investigations explore ideas around mapping, navigation, movement and landscape.
Gardner completed a Bachelor of Design at The University of New South Wales Art and Design in 2014. He has been a sessional tutor in visual arts and ceramics at The University of New South Wales and worked in a number of professional artist studios. Gardner has previously exhibited at Gallery 9, and Wellington St Projects, participated in a number of group exhibitions, and was a finalist in the 2019 Manningham Victorian Ceramic Award.
