Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

Pratt sees his art as a mirror reflecting where we are socially and historically. Sometimes the tone is reproachful but mostly his art examines the contemporary world with a sense of its beauty.

Louis Pratt graduated from the ANU School of Art in 2002 with first-class honours in sculpture. He was awarded an Australian Post-Graduate Research Scholarship from the College of Fine Art, UNSW, which he completed in 2004.

Pratt emphasises that we are in a pivotal point of history and that we need to recognise the effect technology has on our lives. His work asserts that the entire world is available for digital consumption.

Pratt’s approach to sculpture entails using a 3D scanner to transport everyday objects into the digital world. His 3D scanner and laser scanner techniques enable him to distort everyday objects, then, using rapid prototyping, to transport the reconfigured objects back into the real world, revitalised and arresting.
