A large steel sculpture, consisting of a four-sided pyramid base, with two two sides empty, supporting a large valve, throgh which a corroded steel pipe projects.

This valve is neat, a clean example of industrial-strength control and protection. It supports a corroded pipe, which left in the elements will corrode further, until it is replaced by new sections which can begin the corrosion cycle anew. Looking through the pipe, the half-moon view created by the valve’s partially closed gate, occludes and frames whatever vista the work is oriented towards.

This work is a finalist in the 2012 University of Western Sydney Sculpture Award & Exhibition. The exhibition takes place from May 4th – June 3rd 2012.

A raw, corroded steed sculpture, featuring a right angle base formed f rom two C-Beams, with a curved pipe upright, topped by a large valve which appears to be causing the upright to wilt under its weight.

The third of my large scale valve works, There. is a combination of right angles and curves in raw steel with the patina of industrial use worn proudly.

A small corroded steel sculpture, featuring a base constructed of two C-Beams arranged in a right-angle. A cylindrical upright emerges from the end of one, at the end of which is a valve which appears to be causing the upright to wilt under its weight.

An attempt to create a smaller version of “There”, and tackle the problems of relative scale in the various components. When changing the scale of a sculpture, one has to take into account some fundamental issues to do with viewing angle, viewing distance, perceived weights etc.
