About the work
Mandarins before the gallery, 2022
Concrete, oxide, anodised aluminium
95cm (h) x 38 cm (w) x 38cm (d)
Mandarins before the gallery, combines a reference to the monolithic presence of brutalist buildings in Canberra with the whimsy of abstract shapes with halved discs to be reminiscent of segments of fruit. The work is inspired by art and friendship and draws from architecture and formalism with a subjective expression.

Concrete, perspex, steel
200cm (h) x 90cm (w) x 40cm (w)
This work is a continuation of the ‘stack series’ using the combination of concrete and perspex to explore ideas of form, balance and light. There is a sense of containment and freedom through the work as it seeks to use the rhythm of the repeated shape as well as the wet like swirl of the concrete as it has been mixed and cast. The work speaks to internal states of transference as well as the interchange between the physicality of the body and the spaces of the mind.
