King Coal, coal, resin, fibreglass and steel, 172 x 101 x 119 cm
An arrogant, larger than life figure representing Australia’s reliance on coal
“I wanted to anthropomorphise coal. The figure needed to exude arrogance, an unwillingness to change and seem unaware of his impending doom.”

I reckon the evening clouds streaking across the sky compliment this sculpture and the artists vision, one of many unprocessed images from last year 🙂

Exif / shot love:
