Artist Creative Process
Started clay sculpting 12 years ago and switched to marble carving 8 years ago. Study in Italy and Byron Bay under a master carver - Usama Ulnassar.
Have set up a carving studio in Myocum. Runs sculpture symposiums in Byron Shire.
Carrara marble set on local Basalt
My theme for past decade has been to bring to light the importance of appreciating the power and beauty of the feminine as an incubator of all creation.
This sculpture is a fusion of the Madonna image (goddess) recognised almost universally and the general form of the vulva as so worshipped in Hindu culture among others. I propose this as complement to the many phallic forms that have been celebrated worldwide for millennia.
