Sculpture Inside, Cottesloe

Cottesloe Surf Lifesaving Club, Western Australia

The small snake Lounging Around and Infiltrator are two of what I call coffee table works, pieces that are meant to be touched and rearranged to the viewers or owners pleasure. Lounging Around has found a home with a herpetologist who loves him.

Cone-Infiltrator/Redeemer refers to the pine tree plantations in the Western Australian state forrests. As I drive up and down to Perth I see rogue pine trees 20kms or more from the plantations that have seeded by dispersal from birds. How long before these pines are naturalised in our forrests?
