Alpine Ice Cycle
It’s been a while since I have posted here because I have been swamped by the administration work needed to prepare a major show titled Watershed for the McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery in Melbourne opening 16 February. 25 large prints are made, the catalogue is coming together and the videos are complete, except for the music we have commissioned a composer to create. I am currently putting the finishing touches to a 3D sculpture that will be installed at the gallery.
There has been a good deal of interest by the media in the sculpture work recently as well as the upcoming Watershed exhibition.

Reflecting on the year just gone it has been a major watershed for me as I have expanded my practice to include the new forms and mediums evident in the exhibition.
Philippa and I will begin to think of what is next and develop more creative projects. One already lined up is to exhibit Watershed as a solo show at Otago Museum in November, including a new work specially commissioned for Dunedin. From there we want to tour Watershed through a number of New Zealand galleries.
