Charming Invaders

$987.00 USD
Fiona Garlick is a sculptor based in Arrowtown, New Zealand.
Fiona has exhibited in various outdoor sculpture shows including twice in Stoneleigh Sculpture in the Gardens at the Auckland Botanic Gardens, several NZ Sculpture on Shore, Sculpture on the Peninsula and has had work installed at Tai Tapu Sculpture Gardens and Brick Bay Sculpture Trail. Much of her work deals with the concept of place, identity and colonialism. Giant Charm Bracelet, her first big work to get noticed, continues to be made and remade in different locations, and with differing aspects of communal interaction.

Charming Invaders is part of an ongoing series of works which comments on the tension between native and introduced flora and fauna in the New Zealand landscape. Whilst admiring the beauty, charm and clever design of the sycamore seed, the way they are installed and title of the work suggests there is something of an unwanted invasion as they helicopter in to put down roots wherever they fall.
