The Circle Boat - Darren Gilbert

The harmony of humans with nature is at the heart of my practice and I like to work with abandoned timbers mellowed by age and metal objects textured by weather. These are materials that already have history and from these lost and found materials, I create work that makes new history. My sculptures have organic form, often with a quirky element that sits comfortably in traditional or contemporary landscapes. Rusty metal elements have been used to create this sculpture called “ Circle Boat”. A reflection of shapes and colours found in the Australian countryside, bent, burnt and twisted into this unique form.
