Jamie North’s Absolutely Gorgeous Work

Spoils (Tophane-i Amire) 2015

Spoils (Tophane-i Amire) 2015 was created on the grounds at Tophane-i Amire (a former cannon and cannonball foundry in Istanbul) using cement and marble dust, together with rubble and plants found onsite. This work was exhibited at Tophane-i Amire in Concrete, presented by MUMA (Monash University Museum of Art) Melbourne.

Rock Melt 2015

Rock Melt 2015 was commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria International and is a sculptural installation consisting of six columns comprised mostly of concrete, steel and steel slag. The columns respond to the architecture of the space they inhabit, and house a collection of native Australian plant species recalling the former use of the site as an open-aired sculpture garden. Rock Melt has been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria and is to be reinstalled in an outdoor area of the gallery.
  

Terraforms 2014

Solo show at Sarah Cottier Gallery, comprised of multiple forms with cement, marble waste, limestone, steel slag and coal ash as sculptural materials, and inhabited by a complex mix of plant species native to the east coast of Australia.   This exhibition also featured two hand printed silver gelatin photographs, depicting the now non-existant mounds from which the steel slag was obtained.
