AL Phemister
Delicate natural forms morph into giants of the landscape under Al Phemisters guiding hand.
Al is inspired by the natural environment, his wife and his family. His work reflects his love for them and their home.

From his workshop in Yass in regional New South Wales, Al creates decorative forms from everyday and industrial objects. His recent dandelion series each made from up to 400 concrete bar chairs welded together stand more than 2 metres tall in the landscape and seem to gently move in the breeze. His popular Pear sculptures are melded from horse shoes, washers and other metals. Standing up to 4 metres high Al has charmed the individual pieces of raw metal into unique forms that seem to provide comfort in their roundness and gravity. Industrial building materials, discarded horse shoes, and unwanted farm machinery become the parts that create something new that inspires wonder and remembrance. Al takes hard, rusted, steel forms and imbues them with a sense of gentleness and movement.

 

Al is a member of The National Association of Visual Artists (NAVA),
The International Sculpture Centre (ISC)
and the International Association of Artists (IAA).
