Resilient, 2013 H700 W600mm
Artist statement; In art there is a continuous wrestle with balance, texture versus form, line versus tone and negative versus positive. In Resilient the sleek stainless steel is placed against the rusty iron, forming fragile lines contrasting with the bold gestures of the corrugated steel, creating a balance between the spaces. The work reflects a narrative of survival, a balancing the question will mankind overwhelm nature, or will a tree's ability to change with its environment leave it to bare witness over man's demise.
The current touring exhibition Essential Character of Queensland and my entry Road Trip (pictured below) almost comes to a close with its final exhibition at The State Library of Queensland from Friday 15 November to Sunday 15 December, 2013, this venue being closer to home I am hoping to go and view the exhibition.
