Cityscape on the Edge 2: Night Desert
Nancy is a found object assemblage artist and jewellery designer working as an artist-in-residence at River Studios in West Melbourne. She creates brooches, wall sculptures and 3D sculptures from metal, wood, tile and plastic that she gathers from the streets on her daily walks. In the past four years, she has had five solo exhibitions and her works have appeared in more than 30 group exhibitions. She is also the facilitator for the Creativity Cluster group of nine women artists. Her art is inspired by a strong commitment to sustainability through repurposing and upcycling.
This city skyline of flat rectangular pieces of metal, including watch bands and nail clippers, glows under a jeans’ stud moon and battery stars. All the metal was found on the streets. The cityscape is mounted on veneer, which was already painted pink and brown when found discarded in a car park. This found object assemblage is 14x32cm and weighs 0.2kg. This work is sold with either screws and wire ready for hanging, or a stand for displaying on a mantel piece or shelf. Please specify which you prefer. It can be collected by the North Melbourne area.
