Dear Heart is a sentinel; a protector of the earth, warrior of the land. The animal and warrior is within us all, whether it is our totem or part of our spirit or soul. The hole inside Dear Heart is a metaphor of translucence; it lets us see through and reflect upon our environment and on the self.

The earth is out of balance, and because of human neglect it is dying at a rapid rate, it is up to us to be the protectors of the lands; the warriors of the earth.
I often work with re-claimed materials, including wood from old jetty pylons and railway sleepers, steel piping discarded on farms and shipyards and re- claimed bronze that has been re-melted into ingots.Using re-claimed materials wherever possible helps reduce the impact on the environment by utilizing both human and industrial waste.

We have become a throw away society and mass consumption is adding to the earths decline.

Clancy Warner
Australian Artist & Sculptor

My art practice is split between the art that I am torn to make and the art that is a joy to make. I have a passion for animals, so critters have a tendency to pop out every now and then and i am the conduit that brings them to life. They are the joy.

The art that I am torn to make has a political and social justice edge to it. It is work that starts off as an idea that niggles at me until i transfer that idea into a sculpture. These sculptures are the representations of what I experience, see and feel of the world.
