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.
“Nikei” was exhibited at the “Ex Machina” exhibition at Braemar Gallery in 2021. It is a loose and Meccano-like interpretation of the Victory of Samothrace which is on exhibit at the Louvre Museum in Paris. The Victory is a representation of the goddess Nike – hence the name of the work. This sculpture celebrates the process of renewal or rebirthing inherent in my works through the use of found and scrap metal. Such materials exude character through patina and corrosion and in this instance and because the sculpture has been painted, the surface is then deliberately stressed and scratched to provoke a response from the metal.
