Nick Adams - Tasmania
First i was a kid on an outback sheep station. And an Artist. Then I became a Stationhand, Machinery Operator, Drover, Undergraduate, Ecologist, Green Corps Supervisor, Traveller, Father, Fencer, Hoof Trimmer, and once again an Artist.
Now a Sculptor I mainly build animals from wire. Initially focusing on horses, I have developed a style of life-sized construction, characterised by hand-built, repetitious and accurate work. I avoid the use of electricity, preferring simple tools and techniques to achieve my visions. My goal is to transform hard cold linear metals into a belief of life, the inorganic into organic
