Ivan Lovatt wirenetting cockatoos sculptures





YOU’RE TERRIBLE MURIEL!
by Ivan Lovatt
Ivan Lovatt is a regular at SWELL and his pieces are easily recognisable. They are made of wire netting and really are works of art. Every year I marvel at his skill and this year was no exception. His giant Galah, complete with timber perch, is so iconically Australian. As is the reference to that wonderful Toni Collette movie – Muriel’s Wedding. The sculpture was made to commemorate his own little bird ‘Muriel’ who bought much joy to his family.
