In November I won the 2013 Yering Station Sculpture Award for my work 'Let the Jungle In', but my studio practice since then has been focused on completing several large, shallow-relief assemblages which are very painstaking. I am only now beginning to have the time to play with further three dimensional work and 'Deep Water / hanging garden', is one such experiment. It is constructed from the sleeves of a vintage silk velvet evening jacket (c.1950's) that belonged to a family member and a fragile silk shawl (c.1920's) which was donated to my collection recently. Below are some photos showing the work's development. I hope it will eventually hang from the ceiling, so that it rotates gently and can be seen in complete 3-dimensions, but for the time being it is shown as a wall-work.
