Sunflower

This sculptural work talks about move and growth of cities. The materials, Perspex and concrete, are found to be urban characteristics of our bitumen surroundings.

I often travel to coastal towns on freeways, where the Australian speed limit allows us to observe the environment, including concrete, steel, wood, and the translucent qualities of Perspex used, for example, for sound barriers. This work was inspired both by childhood memories of 1970s architecture and the Australian travelling landscape.
