A Very Human Path is a work commissioned for Mindarie Senior College and embraces the idea of a student’s progress being not always straight, but always interesting. This work starts from within the school and springs from the lecture theatre to inhabit the main courtyard. This large work allows students to flow through its parts or sit or lean on the scything linear form. This red line forms a chaotic and playful illustration of the complexity (and ultimately positive) path for us all.
Exposure is a work about maturing. The protruding external wall of the lecture theatre was clad in a variety of sealed and unsealed metals including aluminium, pure zinc, galvanised steel, copper and Corten. Some of these metals are allowed to patina whilst others remained sealed. The artwork references the process of maturing (both the metals and the students) and the changing nature of surface attraction through this process.
