Sculpture blog: March 2019

  • Sunday 24 March I travel first to Osaka for an adventure with friends that takes me to explore the culture of Japan. We arrive in time for the Cherry Blossom Festival and take in the ancient cities of Japan, Kyoto and Kanazawa and walk the Nakasendo Trail in the mountains, the route of Shogun entourages of 16th century to pay annual homage to the Emperor in Tokyo. We will learn about the ancient traditions of ceramics during our visit to Kanazawa and visit the museums

  • Price: $1150 each (includes totara stand)
    Dimensions: All sculptures with stand approximately 1005mm tall x 170w x 170d
    Materials: Red raku clay, totara fence post, copper, steel plate

    Artists’s statement:
    The figures in the Waiting series express vulnerability, patience and thoughtfulness. In reading their stillness and uncertainty, we participate in their moment.

    The lichened totara posts used to elevate the figures lend a rustic harmony to the terracotta colour and surface textures of the red raku clay. They were made by Russell Evenson in collaboration with the artist.

    The Sculpture Alfresco exhibition in Malo courtyard is ending soon, however three of the figures will continue to be exhibited within the Muse Gallery

  • Sculpture Alfresco Havelock North
    The Waiting figures stand tall in the courtyard of the Malo restaurant. Sculpture Alfresco is a collaboration between Muse Gallery and Malo, transforming the courtyard into a temporary open air gallery.
    I have collaborated with artist Russell Evenson to present the Waiting figures on bespoke plinths.
