ANTHONY WHYTE: Urban Serpent

North Sydney street signs and plastic ties, 17000 x 2000 x 600mm – $10,000

Once these signs directed us around North Sydney, now reincarnated as an Urban Serpent they reflect the Serpents mythical past and our urban modernity.

After leaving the National Art School in 1991 I relocated to Portugal, where I had visited in the late 1970’s. For five years I exhibited regularly in Portugal with a final solo show in London before returning to Australia. I was a finalist in the Blake Prize for religious Art twice and more recently won the ‘On the Shore; Sculpture exhibition at Thirroul. Currently I’m doing my Masters in Creative Art at the University of Wollongong.
