CDs and electronics parts sculpture by Sean Avery
Native of Perth, Western Australia, Sean Edward Avery is graphic designer and illustrator of children’s books. However, his primary occupation is manufacturing original sculptures. Meanwhile, the basic material for his works – old CDs and electronics parts. According to the artist, he uses kitchen scissors to cut the shapes he needs out of the CDs. Then, he arranges each shard by color and size. “I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame (that I shape by hand) to create a natural fur/feather pattern. My sculptures usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done! … These sculptures aren’t as sharp as they look — they’re only dangerous if you eat them. I hardly cut myself, but I do burn myself a lot.”
Sean Edward Avery graduated from Curtin University of Technology, received BA in Graphic Design in 2010. His sculpture work is all about re-purposing the discarded to make something beautiful.
