JEFFREY FRITH B.Arch, (Melb.), CPE.
Jeffrey is a dedicated sculptor who practiced as an architect for a number of years. He has experience working with a wide variety of materials at vastly different scales. His love and knowledge of materials informs his art practice where he investigates the material’s inherent sculptural possibilities. The design elements such as line, form, shape, texture and colour provide the means to express, not only the nature of the materials with which he works, but the nature of beauty. The work is poetic in nature seeking to confirm rather than confront, to inspire inner reflection and contemplation.
