Oliver Tanner’s effortless metal elegance
Invited to participate in the annual Kohler Bold. Art. exhibition travelling throughout Asia Pacific and the Middle East, Oliver Tanner is one of 13 artists from across the region who have created a unique piece of curated art to express their views on multiculturalism.
Oliver Tanner is a sculptor and designer who graduated from the National Art School in Sydney, Australia, where he lives and works. In 2012 he completed a scholarship program at the Tom Bass Sculpture Studio School in Sydney.
His practice explores organic forms and shapes through the medium of steel and bronze. Oliver’s sculpture for the Kohler Bold. Art. exhibition incorporates cast bronze to create a unique piece called Interwoven.
This sculpture is a work that symbolically describes the movement, growth and weaving together of societies that are at once independent and interconnected. The work describes the motion of four equal but different elements through space as a representation of multiculturalism in Australia and the interconnected nature of it’s communities.
Oliver benefits from the multicultural environment in Australia and embraces the possibilities to work on projects internationally. He has enjoyed producing his work of art to contribute to the Kohler Bold. Art. exhibition which may reach our shores later this year / early 2018.
