Jesse Graham

Russel the Rhino
stainless steel, brass, tin, iron, aluminium
Wollombi township, 2007

Last year as I was saying my goodbyes to individual artists, Jesse Graham promised me a Rhino! And sure enough not one but two arrived just in time for the 2007 opening. Russel came off the trailer and was installed later to be joined by Bruno, the Baby Rhino. Russel and Bruno are central stage across the road from the famous Wollombi Tavern, the only watering hole in town and can't be missed. The pair, I believe will be holidaying with us for a while - so take a trip up to the Hunter and make sure you visit. You can check out some of Jesse's smaller works in Sydney, for the whole month of January 08 at Regard Gallery - 372 Wilson Street (Cnr. Codrington Street) Darlington, opposite the entrance to Carriageworks performing arts centre.
