Rosalie Gascoigne (1917 – 1999) was renowned for her sculptural assemblages of great clarity, simplicity and poetic power. Her choice of materials, whether manufactured or natural, always carried the imprint of their time in the land. Using found objects such as wood, corrugated iron, wire, feathers and road signs, sourced from collecting forays that evoke the lyrical beauty of the Monaro region of New South Wales, Gascoigne’s work radically reformulated the ways in which the Australian landscape is perceived.
This publication is a listing and illustration of all 692 works made by the artist, with virtually all of the pieces exhibited in her lifetime.
