One of Australia’s most iconic artists, Ken Unsworth, is represented in Australia’s major collections. His ongoing obsession with pianos, stones and large scale theatrical installations has earned him a place on the international stage.
Ken’s latest work – a grand piano featuring large glass and lighting elements, made at Canberra Glassworks – will be showcased during intimate performances by pianists (including Jacob Abela and Roland Peelman) as part of the Canberra International Music Festival.
Smokestack Piano will be accompanied by a display of work featuring the highly skilled artists commissioned by Ken Unsworth including Tom Rowney, Matthew Curtis, Brian Corr, Harriet Schwarzrock, Annette Blair, Scott Chaseling and John White.
In 2003, Matt and Harry established their studio (affectionately known as Curtistan) in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, where they live with their two sons, Hugo and Oscar and a few furry and feathered friends.
