‘Horizon Figure 2009’
Materials Corten steel

Dimensions 300 x 100 x 100 cm
‘Adam and Eve’

‘Oushi Zokei 2017’

Statement The twisted nature of the work contrasts the horizontal line of the ocean.
Materials Aluminium, steel, resin, auto paint
Dimensions 253 x 148 x 36 cm
Statement The flower is a pictorial representation of a three-dimensional experience. Like the elements of a Japanese garden, the sculpture aims to represent an experience of nature but one that has been manipulated and highly stylised.
‘Walking Looking Talking Noppan Nukkan Yunnan’
Statement This is what people do on Granite Island. And these rocks, under an old tree, provide a moment’s refuge to contemplate ‘then’ and ‘now’. An ancient practice, painting on rocks, about what’s important. The paint will fade and disappear in time, making space for something new, just as with all living things.
Statement In a reflection of the solid masses that make up Granite Island, ‘Bystander’ invites you to sit still and take in the timeless and immovable surrounds, as if you were a rock, a witness to all that passes.
‘Blue Cylinder Revolution’
Materials Stainless steel, paint
Dimensions 240 x 200 x 100 cm
Statement I believe that a sculpture is an interactive form of art inspired by nature. This work has six cylinders. Through shifting perspectives, each cylinder shows a variety of appearances.
‘What a Tasty Looking Burger’
Materials Fibreglass, wire, ropes
Dimensions 130 x 130 x 130 cm
Statement Beware the fish are now fishing!
Materials Salvaged electrical cable, plastic
Dimensions 90 x 70 x 70 cm
Materials Peeled white willow
Materials Stone, reinforcing bar
Dimensions 302-366 x 140-162 x 88-135 cm
Statement On the stone shaped by natural forces, the steel bars recovered from the ruins of urban renewal are transformed into a kind of energy that merges with the stone, which grows fragile and firmly upwards in the natural space, whilst simultaneously implying a kind of loneliness which is deeply rooted downwards. Upon being installed on the island, the manifested energy has integrated into the landscape and seems to be silently describing a certain kind of ‘existence’ that we are experiencing.

Dimensions 300 x 820 x 820 cm

Materials copper, galvanised pressed sheet, metal, steel,
Dimensions 250 x 220 x 220 cm
Materials existing seats, persian carpet
Statement Installed on existing public seats Persian carpets were woven into the seats. Traditionally these carpets are used for sitting on in domestic settings while the public seats provide a different place to sit and relax in nature. The union of these elements East / West, public / private, soft / hard, offer opportunity for contemplation and appreciation of the richness of our Australian society and hopefully a visual intrigue.
Materials Acrylic, polyurethane resin, steel
