An exhibition of Sculpture, Ceramics and Drawings by Melbourne artist Robert Delves. Urban and simplistic human forms and interactions represented in clay and ink.
The stroke of black ink to imply purpose, the rough pressing of clay to signify attitude, the raw edge of paper to note clear endings.
All are aspects of Roberts diverse yet cohesive body of work on which we are focussing for the month of July.

Delves has participated in many important solo and group exhibitions including the Montalto Sculpture Prize exhibition, Yering Station Sculpture exhibition, Contemporary 2, Docklands and the McClelland Gallery Grounds for Sculpture exhibition.
Recently a finalist in the Deakin University Contemporary Small Sculpture Award 2017.
