John Meade (born Ballarat, Victoria 1956) employs rigorous geometry and soft organic forms in an intuitive way to materialise his ideas, creating tightly orchestrated pieces that explore the metaphysical, the surreal and the erotic. Meade has exhibited his work throughout Australia and internationally since 1994 and has received several significant public sculpture commissions, including, Riverside Corolla (2011) at Southgate, Melbourne. His survey exhibition Objects to Live By / The Art of John Meade toured extensively throughout regional galleries in Australia.
His work is held in distinguished public collections, as well as private and corporate collections, including Heide Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Monash University Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. Meade received the Anne and Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship in 2003 for graduate study at New York University.
With support from Asialink, Australia, he undertook a studio residency in India in 1998-99. He is represented by Sutton Gallery, Melbourne.
