Psychological Astrological

Tomorrow I deliver my entry into the Sunshine Coast 3D Art Prize held at the Noosa Regional Gallery... The exhibition opens on 17 August and runs through to 07 October.

Psychological Astrological uses a combination of recycled timber, rusted metal and hand-made paper. All materials have had a previous life, have been discarded, rescued and then re-worked on a theme to create a piece of recycled history.
Inspiration for this piece comes from the twelve signs of the western Zodiac - that claims to predict aspects of an individual's personality or life history based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other planetary objects at the time of their birth.
Psychological Astrological is part of a series of sculptures that reflect an on-going fascination with life, death and rebirth and an interest in the traces of past existences. Starting with a pile of un-related materials and slowly working them into an artwork that can be read like a book. The idea of evolution frequently runs through my work as I explore the craft of assemblage.
The work is 50cm high + 50cm wide and 30cm deep.
