Welcome to Laurie Collins Creative Chaos

Reflections by Laurie Collins

Greetings!

Recycled metal sculptures, garden sculptures, junk sculptures, unique furniture, fun metal animals, and lots of other "stuff"  are the sort of things I make. I am a Victorian Regional Artist( note the capitals) and I live in a great part of the state.( Jindivick)( near Drouin and Warragul). I have been developing a sculpture garden and gallery at my place and you are welcome to drop in anytime!

Latest News.

Coming up this next week is the close of The Jindivick Sculpture Show (although 10 pieces go to Narkojee Winery  down at Traralgon fr a few months). 

Lobby Witchells show closes at the Red Tree Gallery and is replaced by Ros Meadmore's Collection. The first real exhibition has now gone through and we had about 30 people for the opening of the gallery, 40 people for the opening of Libby's exhibition so basically about 150 people have been to see her work over the time of the show.

Yakkerboo Art show starts Next Friday night( 29th May) and goes over that weekend.

I am often asked what else there is around Jindivick so I have had Helen Timbury make a Jindivick tourist map. It is available at most of the businesses in town and also at the sculpture garden... but it is also here if you want to download it Click here for Jindivick tourist map

There is an artical by me in the latest issue of Gippsland( the lifestyle) magazine... look out for it.

I  also  worked with Helen Timbury to create a Wine art Trail phamplet which will link the wineries, art sites in a trail  and also list the accommodation places... a 20 page bookletart wine trail cover.click here for wine and art tourist trail This has also been reprinted by the shire( with updates)  

Sue Kiernan and Bec Van Dyk made this little clip of me for the Emotion meet E art show at Yarragon... 6 minutes of me rambling on but the photos be Bec are Fantastic... mostly.. somehow she has made me look overweight and old.... dont know how that could have happened

.Laurie collins you tube clip

.. the Baw Baw Arts Alliance arts Hub has now moved and is at the Yarragon Railway Station Baw Baw Arts Alliance If you are passing through do stop in and have a look as it shows many local artists.The girls

 There is also work at:

 Frances Keevil Gallery in Sydney Frances Keevil Gallery

 Town and Country Gallery in Yarragon( Vic)town and country Gallery Yarragon Victoria

  My work has been seen and sold throughout Australia and internationally, and most people know that each piece is unique and quite popular. ;  The distinctive "Laurie Collins" styling is reflected throughout the vast range of artwork I produce, from painting to drawing and my core junk sculpture work.

 I am active in the local community and I support the many art shows and community events within Gippsland and surrounding regions.  Jindivick is where I live and it is a beautiful setting in which to work and you can do worse than come and visit as there are lots of  local artists and other local attractions. Have a look at the "local events and artists" by clicking on the local attractions link provided.


 Having taught for 30 years I am now a full-time artist, Have a look at the blog to get an idea of what I am doing more or less day by day.
