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.

Well we are just back from our latest Thai art workshop at Raja Mangala University with about 50 international artists and 150 thai artists. Another stimulating and exciting experience. Marian accompanied me this time and she has taken more photos than you could imagine.. just ask if you'd like to see.group of artists at Thai Art workshop

2015 piece

Open Studios was good and sold 3 sculptures. a fine and sunny day to make up for the rainy day at Rokeby market which I left early to go and do something more positive. At the Ficifolia Art show I shared the sculpture prize with Graham Duell and one of the pieces is sold to Rutherglen..

The Red Tree Gallery at my sculpture garden is now being painted so it is gradually moving closer to completion. Come and look!

I have just gone through and renewed all the information signs on my outdoor sculptures so now they are easy to read.

I  had work at the sculpture in the vineyard show at Lucinda winery Leongathaand I sold one of the two pieces..

Yay me ... just had a pacemaker fitted and I am now more alive. The heartrate was down to 28 beats a minute so now its back to sort of normal.

Rokeby Market is the second Saturday in the month

Warragul art Market is on again for 6 months on the third Saturday in the month.

Saturday 30 January – Sunday 29 March

Jimmy Pike’s Artlines- You call it desert, we used to live there
Jimmy Pike was a great storyteller. Touched with a lively sense of humour, his art depicts the dynamism of life in the desert: waterholes, the landscape, animals and plants, as well as Ngarrangkarni or Dreamtime stories, people and modern technology. Jimmy Pile’s artlines is a selection of vibrant felt-tip pen drawings that bring the artist’s country in the Great Sandy Desert of
Western Australia into glorious relief through renderings of spirit beings, flowers, stars and earthscape.

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

  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.
