Dan Lorrimer’s practice incorporates sculpture and object design. His work is driven by a deep understanding of materials, industrial processes and a keen sense of exploration through making. Lorrimer explores notions of movement, energy, solidity and illusion through minimalist sculptural forms, often located between the artificial and natural world. Over the last 7 years Lorrimer has developed a highly productive studio specialling in metal forming. Lorrimer also works with many artists and designers as a prototype and fabrication specialist.

Lorrimer graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Sculpture) from the Australian National University, Canberra in 2009 and has since established a fully equipped independent metal forming workshop. He has exhibited widely in both Sydney and Canberra and is currently represented by Flinders Lane Gallery Melbourne.



Splinter Array is a series of lineal sculptural objects that draw inspiration from natural crystalline structures. Each work is made up of multiple parts or splinters in a continual process of braking apart and reforming. Each time they splinter a new trajectory is found, stretching further outward creating energetic angular compositions. Each splinter feels as if it is growing, through the slow accumulation of molecules and atoms.
