New Sculpture "Seaing the Land - Feeling the Land (Bottle Tree)"

Major new work to soon be installed at Lochaven in Victoria in the coming months.


This work comes from drawings I've done of Bottle trees in the interior. Included in the sculpture are a bronze casting of a Bottle Tree seed pod and and a stainless steel boat form. The boat form symbolizes incoming European arrival while the bottle tree seed pod symbolizes what was here prior to colonization. Both of these elements are formative constructs for contemporary Australia.


Sculpture 3.5m high. Constructed from Corten steel, bronze and stainless steel.
