About The Artwork

By augmenting and dissecting the eucalyptus pods, this sculpture transcends the familiar and reveals the hidden complexities and fractal order within the depths of nature. Cast in bronze, something so transient and impermanent as the seed pod has become elevated and immortalised. This semi-precious metal evokes solidity, longevity and reverence, in direct contrast to how we disregard and ignore much of the tiny natural wonders, like the life-giving seed. Utilising the dramatic impact of polished bronze I am bringing the inside of nature outside and mirroring it back to us.

The native seed pods of Australia have become a central theme in my work. Not only do they house and protect the multitude of new life, they also symbolise nature’s continuous renewal and growth. Our natural world is an endless flow of life coming into form, moving through form and leaving form. My work transcends the everyday/mundane natural objects that we find scattering the Australian land, and re-awakens a fascination with our natural world. When we become aware and mindful of our environment we see that “what has always seemed so natural reveals how wondrously supernatural it is” (Frederick Franck, The Zen of Seeing). By working with the seed pods I am showing the unfathomable complexity and depth of the natural world, while simultaneously pointing to the impermanence within it. Both my sculptural and two-dimensional practice are investigations into the timeless and formless intelligence within nature, no matter what is observed there will always be another layer of truth waiting to be revealed.
