Trophy Heads

View Gallery  

My first attempt at cardboard sculpture was in 1999 while studying at Queensland College of Art.

In an elective called "Green Culture" I was horrified when I heard of the amount of deforestation that was pulped and used to manufacture paper and cardboard.

As an environmental gesture I constructed an installation called "trophies" which consisted of 10 animal heads made out of cardboard with two old fashioned treesaws slung below in the same manner that the hunters would sling their rifles under the trophies of real animal heads that they had killed and displayed in an egotistical gesture.
