Axes These works were initiated out of a growing concern for the loss of old growth trees in Tasmania. As a sculptor living in Tasmania it was impossible to be unaware of the wholesale destruction of the natural forest environment to feed the demands of the State's woodchip industry. I used the axe form, an efficient and yet sensuous tool of destruction as a metaphor to highlight the destruction of my state's forest heritage.
