'Kent Wilson’s new solo exhibition at Anna Pappas Gallery explores our connection to nature through the materiality of wood and its origin in plant growth. Wilson’s series of wooden skulls and intricate abstract drawings are extrapolations and interpretations of natural patterns, processes and behaviours. The skulls implicate human life in the materiality of the plywood, the contour lines reflecting the growth rings of seasonal time. His considered use of this manufactured natural product blurs the fragile distinction between the natural and the cultural.'

So ever since I saw Theo Jansen's Ted talk video in 2007 about his awesome Kinetic sculptors I wanted to see one up close and personal. I will be going to the Occupy Art event in Melbourne city square so while I'm there I will stop off at Fed Square to see his amazing sculptors. I can't wait. I will post a review of what I think later this week but in the meanwhile check out these videos.
