Medium - Aluminium

Commissioned - 1970

Sculptured Form
This work was the winner of a competition that invited artists to represent the ‘metamorphosis of a typical natural Australian environment into complex development for urban use’. Hinder has created a commanding, beautifully fluid, plump work that belies its materials. By polishing the aluminum surface to a soft patina, and allowing it to bulge around the middle, the sculpture resembles a large soft heart, appearing to be made of several chambers but actually one connected and vital whole.
