The construction of my concepts typically employs many little coordinated steps in order for each work to arrive at its desired destination. I do not always take these steps alone. The path through the production of my recent work has involved suppliers, outside studio rental, a waterjet cutter, a powder coater, a photographer and luckily a gallery to show the results of the labor.
Most times the effort given by all of these contributors is not visible in the final presentation of the pieces. To see the general steps taken to construct the Compile and Trailer series, I have added a small image library for each of their construction here.
Beyond the efforts and assistance in the creation of the works, my career benefits from existing within a vibrant creative culture. This culture includes other artists and art related organizations and institutions that provide additional support and help to encourage continual creating.
To this point, I would like to acknowledge the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) for the Australian Artists’ Grant they awarded me to document the works for my recent exhibition. This particular grant is a NAVA initiative, made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Janet Holmes à Court and the support of the Visual Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.
