Bruce Armstrong: An Anthology of Strange Creatures

One of Australia’s most acclaimed sculptors, Melbourne-based Bruce Armstrong is best-known for his monumental totemic figures which can be seen in public spaces around the country. Often hewn from massive pieces of red-gum, his birds, beasts and figures have a raw energy which assert a commanding presence and engage directly with the viewer.
