Goldrush was conceived in 2016
for the Spring Art Fair in response
to the stately Windsor Hotel.




Artist statement:

An exuberant extemporisation of a Victorian hatstand/mirror affair, Goldrush spoke to the grandly aspirational wealth of the 1880’s generated from the seemingly limitless abundance of the Goldfields.

Now located at the abandoned old ‘Flight Centre’ office on Bourke Street. The work could now perhaps be perceived in counterpoint to the city’s new status, a commentary on the boom/bust cycle that has been Melbourne’s destiny.
