Local metallurgist and sculptor Mark Kelly said he was “delighted” to have his Gum Leaf Trio sculpture installed in the reception area of ​​the new Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment. “Mark’s work was chosen by the arts and heritage committee,” said Kerry Hort, manager of the redevelopment project. “He has a long list of photographic accolades, most notably the 2018 Goulburn Art Prize winner.“ It fits perfectly into the overall design vision for the redevelopment. ”The Rotary Club of Goulburn provided much of the funding. The 2.7m tall sculpture was inspired by the gum leaves in his garden. “The three leaves represent a progression of rot,” Mr. Kelly said. “The hand-drawn and cut patterns feature many cutouts in the most rotten sheet to only make a stencil design in the less rotten sheet. “The middle sheet is a mix of cutouts and lines. “To further emphasize the concept, the most rotten sheet is Corten steel, therefore very rusty, and the less is stainless steel. “The middle leaf is a hybrid, the Corten leaf has a piece of stainless steel inserted into part of the spine.” READ ALSO: Rain causes pain and tension as council records damage claim ‘Local focus’: solar farm takes big step towards construction Mark is part of Retford Park Artists of the Round Yard who currently has her x-pollination exhibition until February 7 Her latest creations “Waratah Wonder” and “Banksia Beauty” are on display on the lawn of the White Cottage Gallery. These are both Corten leaves with intricate hand-drawn and hand-cut designs of a waratah and banksia that feature stainless steel components. The waratah floral fronds and banksia pods were individually cut and shaped using a mixture of jewelry and paneling techniques, then welded onto the sheet of Corten.
