Sculpture: Wood, Acrylic, 3D Sculpting on Wood.
eleven percent... was created during Australia's postal vote regard LGBTIQ marriage.
Australian Bureau of Statistics in 2016 revealed that 11% of Australians identify as something other than heterosexual.
My practice works in the realm of reductive abstractionism, with the aims of creating a landscape of LGBTIQ persons in Australia using sculpture, colour and scale to ensure younger LGBTIQ persons that 11% is a huge number of people and that it shapes the way a nation is.
Symbolism, scale and colour have become the focus of my project. The pyramids are symbolic to a hierarchy of those who can have and those who cannot and the pink is a reference to the Nazi Rosa Winkel.
This has produced multiple effects and encounters with ‘eleven percent’. The diversity of effects allows the viewer to experience complete immersion and absorption of the subject and experience the seemingly, ever changing landscape of Australia’s LGBTIQ community.
