Mirjana Dobson is an emerging Australian contemporary ceramic artist with a curiosity and preoccupation for the beauty and vulnerability of our natural world. Her particular interest lies in the rare and complex ecology of our wonderous coral reefs and underwater ecosystems.
Fusing an abstract reference of marine plants, animals and bacteria, Mirjana constructs sculptural organisms that not only connect, but also confront the relationship we hold with Nature. She employs forms, textures and compositions found in the natural environment as design elements for her organic sculptures.
Although her ambiguous forms consider the complexity of all life forms, it is the fragility and delicate balance of nature that is the central and overriding theme in her work.
