Skater – 2022 – 6.1 m x 4.3 x 5.3 high – cast Silicone Bronze – The Esplanade St Kilda


Skater was produced in collaboration with Louise Skačej in response to a brief for a public artwork celebrating the halcyon days of the Saint Moritz Ice-skating Palais

We jumped at the chance to make a grand and playful gesture with a figure lost in the joy of movement.

Skater has been embraced by the local community and has become a St Kilda landmark.

Acknowledgement of Country

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I live, work and make art. This is Stolen Country, the sovereignty of which was never ceded.

I pay my respects to Elders past present and emerging and stand in solidarity with all First Nation peoples, and recognise their continuing connection to Land, Waters and Culture.

Always was, always will be.
