Workshop: Sculpture

Also visited in 2013.

Andy Townsend and Suzie Bleach work collaboratively in their studio-workshop at Braidwood NSW. They create assemblages of welded and forged steel  incorporating salvaged materials and objects in the form of familiar animal subjects.  These sculptures explore the relationship between human beings and the animal kingdom, our history and our place in the wider universe.

Their camel “An Adaptable Migrant”won the People’s Choice award at Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2011.  “What Lies Beneath”, an installation featuring a 5 metre long steel catfish, was exhibited at CMAG in August-October 2012.

On August 15 their studio was destroyed by fire. Their ANU residency will focus on the completion of a new work, a large horse, salvaged from the ruined building.
