The snowshoe hare tends the landscape, they observe us with bemusement and resignation. Our timeline is running.
Originally from Daylesford, Australia, Dando moved his family to Nelson nearly a decade ago. His unlikely first career as a professional rugby player soon made way for his love of art and his current profession of teacher. He loves scrounging through scrapyards to source material – its origins inspiring the story and his creations. Fabricated metal sculpture, industrial collage, multi-media assemblage and paper craft and forming are his passions.
Snowshoe Hare, constructed from steel and timber, is, like many of Dando’s pieces, a truly creative take on the animal kingdom. This hare tends the landscape, observing us with bemusement and resignation.
