Madisyn Zabel is an Australian based artist who investigates the dynamic relationships between three-dimensional objects and their two-dimensional representation, and the growing dialogue between Craft and digital technology. Within her work, Zabel juxtaposes volume and flatness through the combination of cast glass forms with mixed media to create geometric installations that transforms the surrounding space.
Zabel obtained her Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours, majoring in glass, at the Australian National University School of Art, Canberra. During her studies she traveled abroad to participate in workshops at Pilchuck Glass School, Corning Museum of Glass and upon completion of her studies she enrolled in the Studio Assistantship Residency Program at the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio in Norfolk, VA.
Upon completion of her studies, Zabel was awarded numerous exhibition awards and was selected to show works at PICA’s Hatched National Graduate Show in 2016.
Since graduating Zabel’s work has been shown in international publications including Corning Museum of Glass New Glass Review and has been the recipient of awards including Warm Glass UK’s The Glass Prize Bullseye Glass Artists Category and received the Jutta Cuny-Franz Foundation (Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf) Talent Award.
