Third Drawer Down Studio in collaboration with The Margaret Preston Foundation, Heide Museum of Modern Art and Queensland Art Gallery present a three piece collection of art products originally designed for the incredibly successful Making Modernism exhibition and now following available for wholesale. A beautiful collection of homewares, celebrating the artist's gift of capturing Australian native flora. Preston's desire to make uniquely Australian images meant many of her works featured flowers such as the Banksia, Waratah, and Gum Blossom all presented in radical, asymmetrical compositions.
About the Artist
Born in Adelaide as Margaret Rose McPherson in 1875, Margaret Preston had by the 1920s become one of Australia’s leading modernist artists.
Attaching equal importance to craft and painting, she had, by the late 1920s, gained an exceptional place in the Sydney art establishment. In 1929 she became the first woman and modernist to be invited by the Art Gallery of NSW to contribute a self portrait to the collection. In great efforts to develop Australian "national art", she was also one of the first non-Indigenous Australian artists to use Aboriginal motifs in her work.
We are three things; a design studio, a wholesaler, and a store.
Our focus is the very essence of collaboration and the challenges posed by cultural retailing. Everything that comes out of Third Drawer Down Studio bears the hallmarks of artistic integrity, functionality, and singularity.
