Mick Ward has been living and working in the Northern Rivers area for 30 years and has been an established artist for more than 20 years. He has had numerous exhibitions at the Ray Hughes Gallery in Sydney, and the latest (of his most recent works) is currently showing until this Saturday, December 23.
Mick has always been a collector (trading cards, comics, toys, etc.) and his fascination with found objects is the focus of his art. He loves to pop rivet cut up tins, placemats whatever onto objects ranging from kitchen hutches to beach balls. (No I dont know how he does that either.)
His collections often find themselves in his towering assemblages and wall sculptures (like his road mandalas theres a lot of stuff to be found on our roadsides).
North Coast artists rule!
