Above: the finalist sculpture by Natalie Rosin titled 'sculpture by a woman trying to recall her 6 year old self' (2019)
I am pleased to be included as a finalist in the 2019 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. Below is the artist statement for my submission titled 'sculpture by a woman trying to recall her 6 year old self.'
"I’ve been thinking about the first house I lived in near the cliffs in Sydney’s east. We lived there until I was 6, mum said it
was too hot so we moved a few streets away. Built in the 70’s, with many windows and skylights, my crayons would melt,
the markers would dry out and the play-doh would crumble from the harsh direct sunlight drenching each room.
I’ve been thinking about how sometimes people still remark “my kid could have made that’ when critiquing contemporary
art. Well sure, art is there to conjure emotions, to make you think and question and feel. A 6 year old would have a
fresher memory of that traumatic moment when they were snatched from the warm gooey womb. They have all these
questions about life and are still unaware there are no answers to some. They are great artists.
I’ve been thinking about my childhood recently, I think I miss that mass of waxy melted colour. Years of architecture
school’s neutral tones, black and white aesthetic and clean lines made me forget that glob of blue and green and red on
the breakfast table. Here is my comeback, my city of colour."

This February Saint Cloche presents ‘MCM’ – an exhibition held in conjunction with the Palm Springs signature event – Modernism week, celebrating Palm Springs’ rich history of mid-century modern design, architecture, art and culture.
In the spirit of collaboration, the modernist inspired bold & simplified sculptural works of a Ceramic sculptor Natalie Rosin juxtaposed against the bright contrasted paintings of Emma Lipscombe will transform the gallery space.
Taking their cue from Mid-century modern design, known for its ability to take complex concepts and distill them into simple visual forms, these artists will explore the elements of Modern architecture based on abstraction, which is created by clean lines, basic shapes, and forms.
For more information, visit the 'MCM' exhibition page here.
Dates Wednesday 20th February - Sunday 3rd March 2019
Opening night Wednesday 20th February 2019, 6pm – 8pm

"The simulacrum is never that which conceals the truth - it is the truth which conceals that there is none. The simulacrum is true” - Baudrillard 1988
I’m experiencing an existential crisis. What if our world were a simulation, our creator a far more intelligent human? When technology grows to a point of sophistication where we can perform our own simulated world to observe. Does this new world we’ve birthed develop and reach a stage where an additional simulated environment is created? Generations of simulations, how are we the exception?
Maybe a more important question is: does being a simulation matter? Should we rather abandon truth to focus on meaning?
‘Simulacrum in white’ aims to present a ceramic simulation of my own creation, a white ceramic world. At times there are models of buildings we recognise from our own built environment. How do we distinguish between artefact and simulacrum? Is that question a concern anymore? What if the building is the model, while the sculpture is the architectural conclusion?
InsideOut magazine has featured the ceramic + brass tapestry wall hanging designed and handmade by myself.
