Nerine Martini works in the fields of sculpture, installation, drawing, socially engaged art and public art. Her art practice involves a continual shift between a studio / exhibition practice and working on community-based projects. Martini has an interest in working cross-culturally and creating artworks that respond to stories of migration, belonging, displacement, cultural identity and home. Interweaving personal and universal threads Martini’s work poetically expresses concerns for humanity and our shared social and natural environments.
Martini has exhibited widely and has received numerous awards and commissions. She has undertaken studio residencies within Australia and internationally. Martini’s work has been included in major exhibitions such as Sculpture by the Sea, the Blake Prize and the Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Awards.
