Sculpture

 

Karena de Pont’s forays into sculpture are often inspired by found objects.  For instance, FROM THE GROUND UP is a mosaic obelisk sculpture using recycled mirror, stone, tiles, glass pebbles and paua shell.  Whereas tall bamboo poles inspired the gatherings of TALAM BATA, the Celtic name for ‘Earth Sticks’.  This work required years of patience waiting for the bamboo poles to sufficiently dry in order to be painted in colours and patterns that echo across cultures and time.
