Unsprung, latest exhibition

Fortyfivedownstairs Gallery

8 August — 2 September 2023

45 Flinders Lane. Melbourne VIC 3000



It has been a very strange time.

The title of this exhibition,
Unsprung is a play on ‘spring’ and its connotations of hope, metaphor, new life, and new beginnings. It is a continuation and exploration of my past artistic themes and metaphors including the cocoon, elephant, and gorilla. My work always concerns the seeking and creation of safe spaces and is motivated by pleas to look after each other and to protect nature in the great unravelling that seems to be the current state of the world.
