City on the Hill 2 – Wall sculpture by NancyDee Sculptures

City on the Hill 2 - Wall sculpture by NancyDee Sculptures

The ‘hill’ on the left of this small wall sculpture is one of the best pieces of rusted metal I’ve ever found. I can even imagine its geological history, with its various striations, layers and shiny bits. Definitely a hill worthy of the name in this miniature artwork!

Description

This small 7x13x2cm cityscape wall sculpture is called City on the Hill 2.ย  I’ve used a beautifully rusted piece of metal as the ‘hill’, small rectangular pieces of metal to form the ‘buildings’, anda stud as the ‘sun’. All these bits and bobs I found on the streets of Melbourne during my daily walks.

I am a found object assemblage artist and jewellery designer, creating wall sculptures, 3D sculptures and brooches. I limit my ‘raw materials’ to the metal, wood, tiles and plastic that I gather from streets and skips.

Many of my works are inspired by the Melbourne skyline, especially at sunrise and sunset. Often I try to incorporate โ€˜natural featuresโ€™ โ€“ a bent nail that suggests a meandering river, rusted sheet metal that transforms into a cloud, or a broken tile that becomes a mountain.

My more abstract works are stimulated by the found objects themselves, which I often place in juxtaposition. At other times, I emphasise their rusted, scratched or variegated surfaces.

My art is inspired by a strong interest in sustainability through repurposing and upcycling. My hope is that this artwork makes you smile and, at the same time, reminds you of the 5Rs to help our planet: refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle.
