Artist Creative Process
My name is Naomi and i am a mature age visual art student studying the advanced diploma of art at Lismore TAFE full time and studying Art and Design at Southern Cross University part time. I have been creating figurative sculptures from Cement - metal -wood - jute -plaster -plastic - fishing net- recycled materials and clay over the past 6 years that I have been studying Art. 2018 - I exhibited a sculpture in the BRUNSWICK NATURE SCULPTURE WALK, my entry was a tree made from single use plastic bags, located on the breakwall. 2018- Sculpture Installation exhibition, Southern Cross University Graduation Show Lismore campus 2019- Artist residence - Lismore recycle revolve center lismore city council 2019- sculpture commission by Lismore TAFE campus , permanently installed in TAFE garden - 2 meter tall figurative sculpture made from concrete and recycled crushed glass.
Anthrovenus-, Anthro- meaning humanoid and Venus- meaning desire.- is a figurative sculpture standing around 2 meters tall. She is an assemblage sculpture made from recycled industrial metal- recycled timber fence post and concrete. I haven't weighed her but she is too heavy for two people to lift. I am interested in Art and the anthropocene, art that participates in the conversation on how we as humans are impacting and changing our environment. My art reflects my concern surrounding conservation, consumerism and waste, This sculpture is giving value to recycled resources and using manufactured materials removed from there intended functional context to be transformed into art.I intend that configuring these objects to resemble the human form will represent the complex interrelationship we have with nature.
