A Superb Abstract Metal Sculpture ” Twisted by Fate” 

This beautiful Steel Sculpture was a found object, an accidental sculpture created when a building was demolished.  I was visiting someone & I saw it lying under their table and immediately saw it as a sculpture and asked if I could buy it.  I knew what it would look like standing up on a custom base.  It’s not only the beautiful form but also the rusted patina & wear that add to its beauty.

After I acquired the sculpture I had it wrapped in brown paper & carried around while visiting friends, even wrapped in brown paper it looks like a sculpture or a piece of wild ginger root.

You can decide for yourself on its aesthetics as an artwork. Many people from the art world who have seen it in my gallery all had the same feeling as myself, it is a great sculpture

Provenance: The Todd Barlin Collection of Oceanic Art 

See my new EXHIBITIONS GALLERY  showing the Museums and Art Galleries Exhibitions that I provided artworks for over the past 40 years. There is the link to the article about my artworks published in the prestigious Louvre Magazine in 1996

I have artwork for Museums and art Galleries but also for collectors at every stage of their collecting. I want to encourage people to explore the fine art of New Guinea & West Papua and the Pacific Islands and to be able to see and touch the artworks in a relaxed and friendly manner in my Sydney Gallery. I would like to invite you to visit my gallery and see the artworks in person and also look at my website www.oceanicartsaustralia.com where there are many Galleries & Sub Galleries to explore.

My Gallery of nearly 40 years is the last physical gallery in Sydney that specializes in New Guinea and Oceanic Art.  Sydney is very close to New Guinea & the Pacific Islands where all of these amazing artworks came from, Australia’s closest neighbors.
