Gillie and Marc

Gillie and Marc

Initially, Gillie and Marc painted and designed, but have now become very interested in sculpture creating commissioned works for venues such as: Australia Zoo; Sydney Children’s Hospital; Australian Red Cross Blood Service; Hilton Hotel Singapore; McDonald’s Corporate Headquarters in Singapore; and the Ying Ren Four Seasons Hotel in Beijing.

The artists produce sculptures in a variety of mediums including bronze, brass, steel, wood, fibreglass and polyresin. Awards and accolades are numerous for the Schattners. In 2006 they were Archibald Prize finalists. The painting He’ll never be famous but he doesn’t give a damn, he’s a musician, earned them first prize at the 2009 Chianciano Biennale in Tuscany, Italy.

Their life-like fibreglass sculptural piece, Bondi Coffee Dog, appeared in the Florence Biennale in the same year. Stretching controversy further is their work, If Jesus was alive today he would be a skateboarder, which featured in the inaugural 2009 Blake Prize Director’s Cut, an online exhibition. Gillie and Marc has also featured work in the 2012 and 2015 Sculptures by the Sea at Bondi Beach.

With over 20 years of collaboration, Gillie and Marc’s works have received acclaim worldwide and are held in collections both nationally and internationally.
