Since his last solo exhibition in 1996, the focus for sculptor Christopher Hazzard is no longer when his next show is, but rather the work itself.
The works he creates come from the subconscious. Meanwhile the wood itself always hasa say in what is to come out of it. Chris believes each piece of wood has a story, and once the tree has grown and the timber has served a purpose, he is able to find the dream hidden within.
Spending time in Indonesia he finds and recycles large planks of teak or suar, from Australia he carves cedar, Mallee root or burl to reveal the meaning hidden within.
