The Art of Jeff Thomson

Today I decided to go the Jeff Thomson exhibition at the Canterbury museum as it is due to end very soon and I didn't want to miss it.

I wasn't disappoint. In the Shot Right 2nd from the bottom is the artist explaining how his work came about. It was really good video to watch.

Here is a little bit about the exhibition

The retrospective exhibition saluting three decades of work by Kiwi sculptor Jeff Thomson. Known as ‘the iron man of Australasia’, the artist’s trademark style came to the fore in the early 1980s when he crafted a series of mailboxes from roadside materials accumulated during walks near his then home base at Portobello, south of Dunedin. A corrugated iron clad Morris Minor, French knitting, and bouquets of flowers are all part of the mix.
