Jamie North

Remainder No.3 and No.6 2016
Cement, steel slag, marble waste, living Australian plants

Based in Sydney, Jamie North initially worked in photography but is now known for his sculptures that combine the waste products of industry with native Australian plant species to create living installations. His interest in native plants and their ability to survive in the most unlikely circumstances led him to experiment with cast concrete and the bi-products of industrial processes to create miniature landscapes that replicate the ability of native plants to grow and reclaim seemingly hostile environments.
