SUE ROBERTS: The Listrumpet

Stainless steel, brushed finish, electrical components, 1200 x 850 x 2800mm – $5,000

This sculpture follows the theme of entrapment that I have been working on for over a year. It evokes memories of the hearing trumpets of days past and of megaphone wielding coaches running up and down the sports field. The former was used to concentrate sound, and the latter to magnify sound, but in both cases the sound is trapped and contained within the cone of the trumpet, before being projected inwards or outwards.

Sue Roberts was born in the UK, styded at Cambridge College of Art and won the CCAT travel scholarship. She has also studied at Hornsby TAFE, then the National Art School, gaining a BFA (Sculpture) in 2008.
She exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi and received the Peoples’ Choice Award at Sculpture in the Vineyards, and the Kooindah acquisitive Sculpture Prize.
