Artist Statement

The various organic materials and found objects used for this series of 11 crown-shaped objects were all collected on the Sunshine Coast. The crown symbolises the individual sovereignty we have and the ability to take charge of the changing pathways in our lives. These materials represent the diversity of the local environment, relating to flora, fauna and human-made aspects as well as different endeavours, skills and interests of members of the community. For example: beeswax, shed snakeskin and ashes refer to the quest to protect and manage wildlife and the ecosystem; hair, fibres and book pages to creative pursuits, chillies and kombucha culture to local food artisans. The title alludes to the ephemeral nature of the materials and the evolving environmental and cultural changes and challenges. This work acknowledges the diversity of the local communities and the transience of all elements of the environment we inhabit.
