From Where We Once Were
I see and think of ‘the flow’; the flow of land and water, the form of things. I love to contemplate these things.
Mirei Shigemori is an inspiration and his design philosophy of the Japanese garden is a strong influence in this notion of flow.
The bricks are recycled from Takamasa Kuniyasu’s installation from the Australian Sculpture Triennial at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1990.
I love a brick and in quietly stacking and placing the bricks I find a calm space. I have got to know and recognise certain bricks, their colour, their curve. The minute differences in length depending on their colour.
Concentric form, corbelling, stacking, structure, gravity, interlocking, interdependence.
Onyx – translucent, light and seductive.
Marble – pure and soft.
Granite – immutable and tough.
Bricks – hand made, hand laid.
