The call of the wild

&gallery, Sorrento

Using deconstructed objects, garden tools, vintage brass and roofing iron collected from the Mornington Peninsula as a starting point this exhibition of sculpture and assemblage explores our relationship with the natural world.

Since moving to Red Hill from inner city Melbourne 7 years ago I have spent hours exploring the local bushland and beaches nearby observing the seasonal changes and looking fortraces of the natural world. So much of my work responds to the environmental threats posed by climate change, plastic pollution and the social implications of living in our contemporary world.

But the works in The call of the wild are an expression of my deep love and appreciation for the wonders of the natural world and my ongoing commitment to giving obsolete objects and materials a new life in an attempt to reduce waste and out impact on the planet.
