Laurent Rivory is an emerging Blue Mountains artist and a recent convert to steel sculpture. He has shown his work at various national exhibitions including Sculpture at the Farm (2019), Sculpture in the Vineyards (2020) and Sculpture in the Garden (2019 and 2020). He was a Finalist in the Georges River Art Prize 2019. He has had two shows at Braemar Gallery in Springwood NSW, Ferrophilia (2020) and Ex Machina (2021). Using scrap metal and local stone, Laurent aims for a sustainable art practice (he also welds using solar-generated power) influenced by pioneers of steel sculpture such as Gonzalez, Smith and Calder.
“Odona” is from the “Ex Machina” series shown at Braemar Gallery in 2021. The inspiration for this series came about from trips into the country side and driving past rusting steel forms and wondering if it was contemporary art or just scrapped machinery. “Ex Machina” is a series of assemblage abstract sculptures made from found steel. The works feature points of assembly or movement, maker marks and other evidence of past manufacture (often from Sydney). While these features help give each sculpture a machine-like character, the resulting contraptions are clearly implausible or non-functional on closer inspection.
