Victoria artist Steve Milroy has sculpted for over 35 years in a wide array of mediums. Also a renowned muralist – his canvases range from cars to gymnasiums – illustrator, and painter, this self-styled “artist of the common folk” lives in a house he built to resemble a giant oak stump.
His portrayal of a logger is wonderful. Tongue firmly in cheek, Milroy gets all the detail perfectly: from hardhat and earmuffs to thick beard, suspenders and high-top laced boots. He bends a sapling with one arm, the other leans on his chainsaw. There seems to be a slight problem, however!!
