An exhibition of a new body of work and also development work toward the St. George’s Cathedral Patricia Pigeon bequest commission.
Birds Rained is a series of work that follows in response to the 2021 Woorooloo Fires. The works are small sculptural objects in lace cut titanium and silver that depict the skulls of native animals endemic to the affected area of the Darling Scarp; In the tradition of reliquaries and religious objects I imagine them as objects of mourning, mementoes, even artefacts of a crumbling civilisation. The skulls are accompanied by water colour studies of landscape details. In addition I will be showing some of the process work relating to the St. George’s Cathedral Patricia Pigeon Bequest commission.
