City by the Lake 1
Nancy D Lane (working as NancyDee Sculptures) 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 (rusted cylindrical pieces of metal), lit by the sun (a rusted battery), rises above a lake (a blob of cast aluminium). It is mounted on an orange tile, then on the side of what was previously a wooden planter box. This is a found object assemblage 19x20x3cm and weighs 1.6kgs. 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. This item is avaiable for collection in North Melbourne.
