Australian artist Georgie Seccull is known for her vibrant and dynamic sculptures that re-imagine animals, from graceful felines to majestic birds, using stainless steel. These sculptures are characterized by sweeping lines that infuse each piece with a sense of movement and vitality.
Seccull’s artistic medium may be stainless steel, but she masterfully transforms it into fluid and sinuous forms that exude a lifelike quality. She embraces the inherent nature of the material, allowing it to guide the creation process. “I weave the hard heavy steel into fluid expressions of life and force, always allowing the pieces to direct the flow and outcome,” she explains. “It is through this journey of creation, from the unmanifest to the manifest, from spirit into matter, that I continue to find myself in awe of the power of surrender and trust in the reconciliation of opposing forces.”
These sculptures consist of multiple individual pieces of metal, meticulously layered and intertwined to form the final shape of the animal. The result is not only visually light and captivating but also gives the impression that these creatures could spring to life at any moment.
