ARTIST STATEMENT

Evergreen provides the ultimate solution, no watering, no mowing and no insect infestations. There is an element of humour in the work but also a strong environmental message. The suburban dream of a perfectly manicured pristine lawn is seductive and yet repellent at the same time. It is inappropriate in a dry Australian landscape. Australian gardeners use a great deal of water to nourish a hungry lawn. The work seeks to immortalise the appeal for green lawns by making them into sculpture.
