Award-Winning Sculptures by GML’s Martin Rowney

Our very own Martin Rowney, GML Associate and Archaeologist, is also a talented sculptor. His incredible Honours sculptures—that reference medical, biological and digital networks—recently received three awards for emerging artists. They were created from gauges and light switches that were salvaged from the renovation of the John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) at the Australian National University (ANU) in 2014.

While much of the popular collection has been sold, the remaining sculptures will be exhibited at the Belconnen Community Services Gallery from 23 January–10 February 2017.

Adding to the accolades is a reference to the sculptures in the Sydney Morning Herald which lauded the diversity of the work generated by the ANU School of Arts in 2016. It highlighted the unique engagement of the artworks with other schools on the campus.

Congratulations to Martin on his success, and the completion of the Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) degree!
