Lauren Simmonds, Equilibria, 2021, Westernport Bay, Victoria. Wood, bolts, rocks, rope, acrylic paint.
‘Equilibria’ reflects notions of antigravity, strength and balance. This work explores the interconnection of all things in nature to highlight the intricacy of the natural world and fragile ecologies. In this work each rock is counterbalanced by the other. Symbolically the work highlights the fine line that exists between being in and out of balance. Through this work I aim to highlight the beauty in our natural world, focusing my works on poignant issues around our shared humanity, connection to ourselves, each other and nature.
