"Echoes" 2018

7.5m high;  aluminium, polycarbonate and LED lighting

 

 

‘"Echoes” is a reflection on the history of logging the red cedar forests and the central role of 19th century water transport.  Referenced are the bark shadows from indigenous canoe building, the cross-cut saw, and the ribbed frames of timber boat building. These elements have been deconstructed and reassembled in contemporary form to create a composite sculpture that celebrates the site-specific history of Kempsey.
