Australian sculptor, Jane Dawson brings birds, animals and human figures to life in her beautifully made and finely executed sculpture exhibition at Maunsell Wickes gallery in Paddington.
Over time, Jane has found the point of balance in her sculptures, capturing the `bush spirit’ and images of the various species that roam the globe in a well-defined array of bronze and copper art
pieces that impress.
Here is Dawson’s take on animals, man and nature, explicitly created as a compelling work of art with an integrity all its own.
Jane’s sculptures are held in private collections around the world. The Australian Wild Life Conservancy presented one of Jane’s `bilby’ sculptures to Sir David Attenborough for his 90th Birthday, which he gratefully acknowledged recently in a return letter to Dawson.
$200 of each sale is donated to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.
