Obscurers of the Soul

Obscurers of the Soul (Mutilated, Swollen, Bruised, Morphed, Blemished, Warped, Snared), 2013
Cast bronze, various patinas, silk thread

However immaterial and intangible a substance the soul may seem, it is the infrastructure on which our personalities and our identity grows.  Our soul changes throughout our lives and affects who we are as individuals and as humans.

I am excited to announce that I was presented with one of three awards at this years Graduate Metal exhibition for my pieces Obscurers of the Soul. 

The awards were judged by Peter Bauhuis and Atty Tantivit and I'm honoured to have been selected and to receive a prize from Rapid Prototype for CAD design and printing. The exhibition was a wonderful night that surveyed recent graduates of tertiary institutions from Australia and New Zealand, all of whom deserve a huge congratulations. 

Graduate Metal XIV is supported by:
Rapid Prototype, Pallion, A&E Metals, Koodak, Botobolar Wines Mudgee & Youdan Properties.

RAW: Visionary [Sydney showcase]

Last weekend I participated in RAW artist's Visionary showcase, presented at Manning Bar in Sydney. This incredible organisation provide a platform for emerging artists to be seen and to promote their work. 

"RAW is an independent arts organisation for artists, by artists."


Thank you to everyone who came to support me at my showcase. It was an honour to present my work alongside so many other wonderful artists and a fitting good-bye to Sydney as I journey to Adelaide to take part in The JamFactory's associate program. 

Here are some of the official photos from the evening!
