dimensions approx 120 x 80 x 15 cm

Incubate is a sculptural installation made from cast bronze branches and found materials, suggesting a colony of insect cocoons or sleeping bats. Each pod shape is slightly different but all convey a sense of tension, pausing before breaking forth into life and taking flight. The pods of found materials in Incubate were created last year whilst I was an artist-in-residence with the Gosford Regional Gallery. More information...

Incubate is being exhibited in Sculpture Otherwise - an indoor exhibition featuring participating artists from Sculpture at Scenic World 2013. Demonstrating the diversification of contemporary sculptors’ practice, selected works include maquettes, drawings, video, photography and small-sculpture. Realising sculpture is an ever expanding discipline, Sculpture Otherwise was named not to be whimsical, but to reflect the varied skills of sculptors today.
