This sculpture evolved from the lagoon near my home and inspired by the waterbirds that nest in the reeds and trees.






Sculptor Bio

Colin Tapping

Colin Tapping

Originally from New Zealand now an emerging wood sculptor on the Central Coast of NSW where I have lived for many years. I have been creating sculptures in wood for a few years and have not undertaken any formal art or sculpture training.

Predominantly I work with found wood from the forest and surrounds choosing my raw stock on the potential I can see and how it inspires me. There is no preconceived design with each sculpture, how I imagine a piece does not allways translate as the design I must follow, making it an everchanging process and on occasion surpising. For the majority of my works I try to develop each sculpture without imposing external influences on the form, this can be an ongoing battle of restraint not to have any one thing represented. I believe this is the key to creating a sculpture that is individual, never duplicated and open to so many different interpretations.
