Cataract Gorge Cottage AIR (2012)

GATHERED is an exhibition of the works created at the King’s Cottage Artist in Residence Program in February 2012.

Cocoons vary in transparency, texture, material and form depending on the species of insect within.

I have worked with this ethos to create three large scale sculptural works, each with their own character, material and form. Each cocoon form has been dictated by the intrinsic quality of the species of twigs collected.

Each cocoon is constructed from different species of fallen twig, gathered from various locations within the Cataract Gorge Reserve and created within the King’s Bridge Cottage.
