Cambridge studio gallery portrait show

Here I am with my self portrait that was shortlisted in the who is looking at you portrait prize at the Cambridge Studio Gallery in Collingwood Melbourne this month.

With this self portrait I wanted to show not just what I look like, but what I do. By incorporating painting, woodwork and sculpture, I am demonstrating the puzzle-piece nature of identity.

The sparrow and the bread crumb

I wanted to create a sculpture of a simple everyday concept. Using the house sparrow that I see everyday  searching for it's next meal proved to be the perfect source of inspiration. Reducing the lines and form to show the essence of the subject as if it has been drawn using Japanese brush work.

Red gum, metal, marble and stone base. Bird: 69Lx22Wx33H cm, Base 93Lx55Wx2D cm.
