2019 Finalists

Danie MELLOR

Artist statement: The elements in this work hint at an interplay between natural and constructed worlds, echoing in part Alexander Calder’s assemblage ‘Universe’ (1974). My work suggests a systemic framework that relies on cosmology and nature rather than Calder’s mechanical drive, and the cultivation of a deeper spiritual understanding of our environment. It acknowledges the presence of ancestors, and the poignant discourse around belonging and story places. It also points to connections between artists and world views that are material and vital, and allows conversation and collaboration through ideas and cultural knowing.
