Item details

This body of work is a play with how we view nature compared to how we view ourselves, man. We can see a tree showing its experience and age with knots, bulges and carbuncles and still see the beauty that is contained. Though when it comes to humans we have a tendency to forget that we are part of nature, we allow no imperfections.
Through these Kawakawa carvings I aim to see the beauty of the whole, not simply to isolate the perfect..I love the shadow and pattern that these works 'throw' onto the walls..It is as though the imperfection of the holes only adds to their beauty.

Cut and carved marine ply, Sculptures suitable for all outdoor conditions.

My sculptures give a sensual experience as well as a visual one. Careful attention to detail, whether in form, surface or shadow is central to my practice and works.
I am attracted to the minutiae found in Nature, especially objects that are often bypassed or go unnoticed.
