Kilter – Sally Stoneman


YEAR: 2021-22

MATERIALS: granite, recycled rabbit proof fence

SIZE: 125 x 80 x 45 cm

The construct of TIME is a paradigm that intrigues and informs this sculpture. We are living in the epoch of the Anthropocene which is described as the period of time in which human activities have impacted the environment enough to constitute a distinct geological change. Kilter aims to evoke the natural forms of the Australian landscape whilst referencing our collective need to strive for balance with the natural world. The materiality in this work elicits a tactile response to the environment incorporating the recycled ‘rabbit proof’ fence (from the Murchison station country) representing a literal and metaphorical symbol of colonisation.
