Transformer: Fields of Change

A series of shaped painted objects that developed from the Armoured Car project. (Click HERE to visit the Virtual Wing of that vehicle).
In their own quickish way these objects formed a Missile Defence System for the Armoured Car.


These 3 dimensional works were part of a group which included works on paper (2D Transformers). This collection toured in 1989, titled   Transformer: Fields of Change,
and were exhibited in these venues:

Albury Art Centre (first exhibiting venue)
Ben Grady Gallery, Canberra,
Penrith Emu Plains Gallery,
Mildura Art Centre,
Benalla Regional Art Gallery,

Roz macAllan Gallery, Brisbane

Gallerie Dusseldorf, Perth,

The works in this exhibition were freighted to Perth. Included was a group of large pencil and charcoal drawings on thin plasticised canvas sheet. The images on these sheets resembled projected images of the large Antipodean is. Several of the three-dimensional transformer objects were included in the installed exhibition. The spatial relationship between the flat drawings and the objects created their own tension.
