Darren Gilbert has a profound love of Australia’s environment and strives to live in harmony with it. No sharp lines define the border between his existence and that of the surrounding landscape of his Highlands home and studio/ workshop. Inside the studio, there are remarkably detailed drawings of native birds in various stages of completion, from the small preliminary sketches through to large black-and-white ink works. But, as Darren explains, the theme of Australia’s flora, fauna, and terrain are central to both the rustic metal sculptures and the ultra-precise, monochrome drawings of wildlife. At the large workshop, scattered around are rust flavoured sculptures in various shapes, sizes and construction. A beautiful old wooden shack, looking like it's from a bygone era, sits in amongst the sculptures, the workshop and a large stand of gum tress, the original inspiration for Darren's rust sculptures.
