Environmental Sculpture

Keith Chidzey

Keith is a sculptor and land artist, driven by a desire to highlight beauty in the world. After almost 20 years as a dental surgeon in private practice, and due to an injury, he undertook tertiary study in Fine Arts specializing in sculpture. The last years were spent researching fire as a method of visual expression, culminating with a Master of Fine Arts (UNSW) in 2013.

His practice currently utilizes the media of timber and bronze but is open to many other materials, including the continuation of the exploration of fire works. 

Thematically, he has recently been researching the history and contemporary implications of the life and writing of St. Francis of Assisi. Realization of this has taken material form, as commissions, residency work, and many group and solo shows.

Creating - in Creation - using the Created

Nature is already a glorious work of art. Let’s take a risk, abandoning the safe studio, the familiar pencil, and open up to unexpected ways to see, appreciate and interact with nature. 

Discover the joy of creating outside ‘normal’ art by utilising the materials around you in a variety of guided projects. Use what you find as your palate to make beautiful creations that may or may not be discovered by others before they eventually disperse. It will be about the joy of collecting, of discovery, and of finding joy in the present. 

Time in His Creation creating - how much better can it get?
