Sentry, steel & pewter - 3m
Undercliff Winery, Wollombi 2006

Col has been practicing art seriously for over thirty years and works from his Mulberry Park Studio and Gallery at Wyong Creek, NSW. He runs art classes in sculpture specialising in Art Foundry.

With his work 'Sentry' Col is exploring the relationship between the figurative form and its spatial interaction in his chosen medium of steel and stainless steel - adding a deliberate degree of difficulty.

By exploring the natural form through abstraction, he draws out the natural beauty of the material to enhance classic forms. By playing with the interaction of contradictory compositional elements, he speaks a sculptural language most people can relate to even without a formal understanding of contemporary sculptural practice.
