Artist Statement: One of my most complex and difficult sculptures to make. I have inlayed a bronze torso into a Carrara Statuario female figure. The figure lays on a wrinkled bed covering. The sculpture is mounted on mirrored plinth which gives the impression of
floating.. - Roger McFarlane.
Medium: Bronze and carrara marble
Dimensions: 20 cms h x 100.5 cms w x 50.05 cms d
Director's Statement: Formally trained, Bachelor of Fine Arts from Newcastle University, further studies in sculpture at the Palla Studio Piestrasant, Italy. Roger McFarlane's reputation overseas is where he achieved considerable notoriety- having exhibited in Paris at the Automne Salon on 3 occasions. Recently he won the 2013 Abstract sculpture prize at the Maitland Art Prize. With over a dozen sculpture prizes over the past 20 years, he has taken part in over 60 group exhibitions. His body of work comprises abstract and figurative marble sculptures, many on a domestic scale. Both Australian and imported marbles from Italy are used. Roger’s vision for Australian art is... 'Australia needs more quality public art and collectors should have sculpture representation. For too long 3D art forms have been excluded from many important collections within Australia’. It is his opinion and commitment to encourage a change. For as he says “an art collection without sculpture is like having a Greek salad without olives”.
