Mira Gojak lives and works in Melbourne. She studied Science, Psychology and Zoology at the University of Adelaide. She talks about a kind of restlessness that took hold while on practical placement, which necessitated a change of tack – in 1989, she moved to Melbourne to study painting at the Victorian College (then located in Prahran), before completing a Bachelor of Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1992.
Working across disciplines, Gojak’s art is recognizable for its use of fluid line, both on paper and in sculpture. When approaching projects in 3D her work seeks to intuitively omit mass while retaining the form’s thumbprint.
Mira has held numerous solo exhibitions, including Transfer Stations, Murray White Room, Melbourne, 2011; Mira Gojak, Switchback Gallery, Monash University, 2010; and Another Ground, Murray White Room, 2009.
