Paula Dunlop is an artist, designer and maker based in Brisbane, Australia. She has a persistent interest in materiality and making — our apprehension of, and how we engage with, the material ‘stuff’ of the world. Dunlop's work explores the physical and cultural locations of making, and the bearing of these locations on what we do and how we do it — how we make, and are ourselves simultaneously made, by the practices, spaces and things we engage with. She is drawn in particular to the histories and traditions of creative work undertaken in domestic spaces, and the way we conceptualize and engage with quotidian objects and materiality. These concerns carry through all the work she produces, regardless of the end object or outcome.
