David Smith crafts his eclectic range of sculptures in his Queanbeyan studio, from reclaimed steel and other materials. His current works capture the essense of native Australian animals that, due to urban encroachment and introduced pests, are threatened, vulnerable, or endangered. Imbued with humor and playful elements, the sculptures draw attention to the serious issue of human impact on the environment, as seen through the eyes of some of our most iconic animals. These works serve as a reminder that we need to do more to protect our fragile world – for ourselves and the other species with whom we share it. A percentage of gallery sales from this exhibition will be donated to Wildcare Queanbeyan.
