Re-magine

Here is my Fallen Angel currently on display as part of Hornsby council's Re-magine exhibition.
 
 
 
I actually made him several months ago and, when  I went to  get him to deliver him to Wallarobba for the art prize, I was unpleasantly surprised to find that the plastic used to make the "cloud" had started to break down. Not sure if this was caused by the glue and/or the paint or if it was designed to break down anyway.
 
I was a bit worried that he might not survive the journey however, fortunately, he did!

Not that I'm totally convinced that Scottish independence is the way to go but it's nice to see the SNP properly represented:)

North Sydney Art Prize!

Good news! My rabbits have been accepted into the North Sydney Art Prize which is being held in the historic Coal Loader site at Waverton right on the Sydney harbour foreshore.

Here are some of them in the garden!


As the theme of the exhibition is environmental sustainability, I am entitling them Plague Proportions with the following statement
 
My installation, Plague Proportions, has upwards of a dozen rabbits crowded together in an unsustainably dense group to illustrate how the delicate balance of the Australian environment, can be upset by an imported species. The humble rabbit, in itself, well trained and handled, has been proven to be a useful member of its native habitat for hundreds of years, whereas, imported and allowed to run riot, they are  having a devastating and long term effect on the Australian environment in just over 200. I also see the rabbit, whose fecundity is legendary, as a metaphor for the human species whose population is burgeoning out of control in many areas of the world least able to sustain it.
 
You can catch them there next March!
