Pete Mattila



Pete Mattila, an artist and master blacksmith, will present a new series of large steel sculptures that explore notions of transformation, industrial mining and forestry. These will be presented alongside vessels holding materials collected from the Tasmanian landscape, such as magnetite from Savage River and charcoal from the Weld Valley. The exhibition, Pete explains, is about ‘material and elemental histories, the speeding up of deep time, and the future of the physical resources at hand.’
