Drawn to materials that are weathered and worn, Alex Asch reinterprets found objects in the construction of his unique sculptures presenting new ways to examine our environment. ‘On the horizon’ explores the transformation of the land since British settlement, using materials reflective of our rural buildings and concrete cities. Asch labels his landscapes as 'premonitions or warnings' "unfortunately we have done little over the last quarter century to change our relationship to the natural world and first nations people". Alex's work has recently been collected by the National Gallery of Australia and is also included in the collections of Artbank, ACT Legislative Assembly and Canberra Museum and Gallery as well as corporate collections in Australia, USA, UK and Netherlands.
