Roo with a Selfie Stick - corten steel  220 x 150 x 111cm - $12,000

Jimmy Rix’s sculptures often relate to personal experiences and familiar objects. Having lived
within both natural and farmed 
Australian landscapes throughout his life,
 rebellious kangaroos, machine-horse hybrids, 
 playful sheep and
utilitarian objects have inevitably been cast as the actors of his narrative-based works.
 In these sculptures a sense of humour, an engagement with Australiana, an interest in 
scale and a 
 concern for the environment are often the underlying themes and inspiration

Colonial Horse - bronze - 29 x 27.5 x 11.5cm - $3,800

Usually between 20cm to 70cm in height, Rix’s small-scale works 
are often made in bronze and have been exhibited extensively
 throughout Australia. The Artist’s thirteen one-person shows and
 participation in close to sixty mixed exhibitions have also included
 the display of large-scale sculptures that are often formed from steel. 
This less expensive material has allowed the scale of Rix’s work to exceed 
7 metres. His ability to envision and execute enormous works has led to 
many impressive public sculpture commissions and inclusions into a large number 
of outdoor exhibitions and sculpture prizes, from which he has received five 
accolades in the last three years alone. 

Barking Owl - painted steel - 18 x 41cm -$1,500

Grey Cat Bird - painted steel - 43 x 27cm - $1,500

Tawny Frogmouth - painted steel - 40 x 18cm - $1,500

Although he consistently delivers works with a comedic overtone, Rix’s sculptures
 challenge scale, present narratives, humanise animals and ask questions about the future of our earth.
