Car Panel Sculptures
A curated selection of my works in a former automotive garage
23 November – 23 December 2018
Brogan’s Way Gin Distillery
61 North St, Richmond VIC
Fri/Sat 5 – 11pm | Sun 1 – 7pm
I attack paint smothered car panels with grinding, sanding and fine carving tools to create 3D layered surfaces.
The colourful, automotive sculptures are polished or clear-coated as a final step.
The thinly shaved and intricately carved surface is a nod to Indigenous tribal tattoos.
