Richard Byrnes: Bestiary

Bestiary
  • 25 May - 26 Jun 2017
  • Gosford Regional Gallery

Bestiary explores the concept of combining human and animal forms through sculpture. Carved wood and ceramic figures are clustered together and positioned on rudimentary vessels to give the viewer a window into a narrative.

Byrne’s describes his works as “a representation of our basic instincts, which are inherently animalistic, lurking inside us all, juxtaposed to our higher human attributions.”
