Collaborators in life and art Ulan Murray and Rachel Burns present works of pure beauty and elegance. The sculpture evokes a strong sense of place from around the globe and awaken memories of the past. Their works are made predominantly from copper and more recently corten steel.
Ulan Murray is a lapsed biologist who has spent the last 10 years consolidating his arts practice. Rachel Burns is a practicing artist with over 30 years’ experience in the arts industry. She has an Honours Degree in Creative Arts from Wollongong University.
The sculptures depict the equilibrium between the foliage and the root system of the tree – an image that is rarely conceived. The work becomes a meditation on the environment: from the monumentality of landscape to the minutiae.
