RUDI JASS: Wakaba (Young Leaf)
As an artist I take my instruction and inspiration from forms in nature – from the detail contained in a seed pod to the fragility of a massive riverbed. Currently I am working on kinetic sculptures. I find it fascinating how the organic shape of the sculpture relates to nature through the movement by wind. represented by Australian Art Resources & AXIA Modern Art, Melbourne, Soho Gallery, Sydney and Salt Gallery, Queenscliff German born Rudi Jass, came to Australia in 1993. He also lived in Canada and Papua New Guinea and has been working as a full time sculptor since 1990.
