“LOST & PROFOUND”
20 July – 15 August 2012
Sydney artist Geoff Harvey has been busy creating paintings & sculpture of dogs, cats & birds for this solo exhibition @ Robin Gibson Gallery 20 July -15 August www.robingibson.net
In keeping with his recognised style most works are made from recycled materials. “I have foraged high & low & found some splendid pieces to work with” he said pointing at a sulphur crested parrot made from old white weatherboards. This bird is captured launching into full flight across the gallery wall.
Harvey who is best known for his remarkable dog sculpture will also be exhibiting his equally impressive cats & birds in this show. “My cat Lucy is delighted that I have seen the error of my ways & I am now creating cat sculpture. Cats are an inspiration for me” he said. Because their behaviour is so different to dogs it has been a challenge for Harvey to find a way to best portray their many moods.
One cat is depicted stalking it’s prey while another is captured doing what cats do best relaxing by letting the world go by.
