Monday, 21 November 2016
Gilbert Riedelbauch is a contemporary designer/maker whose practice centres on the integration of digital fabrication with traditional ways of making.
A graduate of both the Academy of Fine Art Nuremberg, Germany, and the Australian National University School of Art, Riedelbauch’s work includes public art, sculptural-objects based on mathematical equations, and Light objects using LEDs.
Of particular note is Riedelbauch’s composite aluminium Folded Forms. Formed using a combination of digitally controlled and manual processes, the Folded Forms series explores the relationship between two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects.
Riedelbauch exhibits his work both nationally and internationally, and it is also held in the collection of National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences in Sydney, and the Canberra Museum and Gallery.
Riedelbauch works at the Australian National University School of Art as a senior lecturer where he heads the Core Studies Program and is coordinator for the Design Arts.
