The work ‘Hakea Genesis’ explores an imagined mythology. The binary nature of the Hakea seed pods have long held attraction for me. The form and textures of the pods and the Hakea bush’s bark and sparse needle-like leaves are striking in our local coastal landscape. The enlarged pods of the sculpture, instead of seeds, bear the bas-relief forms of a male and female figures awakening. This work reflects the truth that we are born also of our environment and our place. As we mature, grow and learn we must assume the responsibility of stewardship for the environment and all its flora and fauna. Now, this has never been more important.
