Heavier Metal


A rusty lawnmower, a spanner and an old car engine walk into a bar… Okay, let’s leave the metal humour to someone who knows what they’re doing. Christopher Trotter is a local sculptor known for his wit and uncanny ability to give new energy and personality to scrap materials and disused mechanical parts (which is a pretty tough thing to do!). His new exhibition, Animated Steel: Heavier Metal, launches at Brisbane’s gallery artisan on Feb 9th alongside Derlot’s Bespunk, an equally intriguing series of ‘trash to flash’ sculptures. RSVP via email for the opening night and catch guest talks on upcycling, recycling and repurposing from both the artists and Raffaele Persichetti of Holloway Eyewear (as seen in Issue 12!). I always knew there was a reason I’ve always loved trips to the tip…
