2019 Heysen Biennial, The Cedars Hahndorf, Adelaide South Australia.
Taking time to examine and to dwell on the exquisite detail that nature provides us underpins the concept for 'Globulous'. Inspired by the delicate flower forms of the acacia trees found throughout the Adelaide Hills and at The Cedars, the sculpture is a stripped back interpretation of these forms shifting the focus to the architecture, materials and processes. I like the fact that the work can also be read as an atomic form.
I hope that this work encourages visitors to take the time to dwell on the significance and beauty of the Australian landscape and to help protect its extraordinary flora and fauna.
