Ainslie Murray is an interdisciplinary artist, architect and academic working principally in painting and installation. Her work explores the augmentation of architectural space through subtle realisations of intangible, hidden, and forgotten spatial forces. The air of architectural space, the choreography of the body, and the repetitious rituals of the construction process each find a focus in her work. The two and three-dimensional works may be considered as active architectural spaces, where undulating surfaces draw attention to both artefact and process, and evidence sequences of conception, assembly and inhabitation. Ainslie was awarded her PhD in Visual Arts from the University of Sydney, and teaches a wide range of interdisciplinary architectural design and communications studios in the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University of New South Wales.
