Freya Jobbins goes ‘OTT’ for Sculpture at Scenic World
You can’t go past one of Freya Jobbins’ distinctive pieces without taking a second glance. Ranging from assemblage, installation, collage and printmaking, it’s hard to believe this internationally renowned artist only started practising her craft in recent years as a second career.
Her latest creation ‘OTT’ will be in the most unique location during Sculpture at Scenic World, the Miners’ Hut. Freya will encase this small unassuming space with up-cycled children’s toys that have been discarded in op-shops.
While she wants visitors to remember all the joy that these toys bring, she also wants viewers to be mindful of the consumer culture we live in, and contemplate the need to over indulge children with material goods.
Freya has exhibited her works throughout Australia and all over the world, but never in an outdoor space like the Jurassic rainforest of Sculpture at Scenic World.
“I really like that my work is not just seen in a gallery space, I like to see my works in diverse spaces. I am not a fan of big white plinths either so changing the environment my work is placed in can also make the work be seen differently,” she said.
Freya’s work will be showcased at Sculpture at Scenic World in the Blue Mountains from April 13 to May 13.
Showcasing works from over 35 local, national and international artists among the stunning Jamison Valley, Sculpture at Scenic World appeals to all ages with creations ranging from subtle artworks to bold installations.
Accommodation packages are available, starting from $98 per person for two nights.
