Alan Constable

Alan Constable is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice spans drawing, painting, and ceramics. He is most renowned for his ceramic cameras, which the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne recognised when they acquired thirteen pieces presented in 'Melbourne Now' in 2014. Constable began developing these tactile sculptures in 2007, and they reflect his life-long fascination with old cameras. Alan Constable (born 1956) has worked in the Arts Project Australia studio since 1991 and had his first solo exhibition in 2011. He has had solo shows at Andrew Baker Art Dealer, Brisbane; Darren Knight Gallery, Sydney; South Willard, Los Angeles; and Stills Gallery, Sydney. He has featured in numerous group shows and awards including Victorian Craft Award, Melbourne; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and at MADMusée, Belgium. Institutions that have collected his work include the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and The Museum of Everything, London.
