2014 OZ Minerals Copper Sculpture Award winner: Chris Ormerod
Artwork: ‘From the Hill’
Chris’ creation, From the Hill, is a large sculpture, standing over 1.8 metres high and over 2 metres long. The copper has been heat-treated through welding techniques to create an impressive sculpture with rich colours.
This work stems from his to trip back from OZ Minerals’ mine, Prominent Hill, where he was very taken by the colours emanating from the land. Working with copper on previous occasions, Chris noticed a similarity of colours from applying heat.
