and a poem about my work . . .

the end of May
gusts  animate falling plane leaves / a farewell curlicue dance / through thinning air /
collins street 5pm /crisp leaves crackle and crunch / beneath determined feet /
melbourne in autumn / quieter walks on leafy carpet / softened by rain /
and amongst fallen leaves / other seasons’ ends / rest and curl      Carmel Wallace 2014

Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2014

INVITATION- Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2014

Atlantis © Carmel Wallace 2014

My Atlantis series developed in contemplation of imaginary underwater worlds composed of plastic objects I have collected on the tide-lines during my many beach-walks along the southwest coast of Victoria.  All the objects that form these small sculptures have spent time in the ocean, their marine journeys evidenced in inscribed surfaces and modified forms.
