Jamie North

Born: Newcastle, Australia 1971
Lives and works: Sydney, Australia

Jamie North is an artist whose primary medium expands sculpture over a discussion between the natural and the man made. Inspired by a sense of place, North’s terraforms extend his observation into plant intelligence, cultivating a system in which chosen native plants are able to regenerate and thrive, embedded into works of architecture constructed from waste or industrial by-products of the man made.

Jamie North has exhibited internationally including solo exhibitions at Sarah Cottier Gallery, Terraforms (2014), Remainder (2016) and Worlds (2019). International Group exhibitions include Concrete (2015), at the Tophane-i-Amire Cultural Centre in Istanbul, and selected as a resident in the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore Residences Programme in 2017, other highlights include exhibiting in the 20th Biennale of Sydney. Jamie North held in major public collections including, Museum of Old and New (MONA), National Gallery of Victoria (NGV)
