Olive Gill-Hille's second solo exhibition includes a collection of often functional and always sculptural artworks crafted from ethically sourced Western Australian jarrah and she-oak. Building on the themes of her debut exhibition, Trunk, Gill-Hille's latest works explore the delicate interplay between human relationships and the natural world.

The body of work highlights the fragile equilibrium of our surroundings as well as our own human connections and anatomies.

Throughout the exhibition, Gill-Hille showcases her command of sculptural form and intuitive woodwork with organic, expressive carved shapes using the textures and natural qualities of native Australian timbers sourced from already fallen trees. The reduction in logging in future years combined with the effects of deforestation mean that each work is an act of preserving and honouring this diminishing resource.

‘The old growth trees are dying, and I'm making work out of these dying trees because that’s what’s there. I'm using a material that's plentiful’
