Sublime Climb, Eye Rhyme creates a fantasy experience based on the Australian landscape from an assemblage of found timber pegs, rocks and miniature gum trees, mountain climbers and bush walkers, all contained and transported in an aged and painted timber tool box.
The toolbox holds a seemingly transportable dreamscape that offers us sanctuary as well as adventure, through forms that evoke a range of physical experiences, memories and the pleasure of imagining.
