Artist Statement I envision the shopfront as a home for a flock of larger-than-life whimsical birds inspired by the local birdlife from the snowy mountains. The birds are constructed with found objects sourced from roadsides, tip-shops and op-shops of the local area. They are constructed with pipes, irrigation tubing. discarded wood, fabrics, tennis rackets, discarded roadsigns and paper-mache. These quirky and unusual
birds will celebrate the native birdlife of the area.

Biography

Tom Buckland is an artist who deals in a correspondence of imaginary worlds. He creates work heavily influenced by his own fascination with science fiction and fantasy, topped off with a refined joyful absurdism. He takes enjoyment in transporting his audience to other dimensions across space and time. In 2015, Buckland graduated from the ANU School of Art with a BVA (Hons) and was the recipient of the John and Elizabeth Baker Honours scholarship and the Canberra Contemporary Art Space graduate award. Buckland has exhibited nationally and internationally and in 2021 was the recipient of the Sculpture by the Sea Clitheroe Foundation emerging artist mentorship.
