“What’s that Skip, did you get their rego!?”
Skippy was an Australian TV show that aired in the 1960s about a loveable grey kangaroo who could communicate with humans.
Skippy the Kangaroo captured the hearts of the country and to this day remains a cultural icon.
You know what is also part of Aussie culture? Roadkill.
By giving Skippy this unexpected fate, I’ve turned the traditional kangaroo sculpture, and a beloved character, on its head.
Confronting, thought-provoking and humorous, this daring metal sculpture is sure to get people talking.
Art is about pushing the boundaries and I love that this sculpture gets a reaction from everyone who sees it.
I’ve had comments from people who loved it, people who hated it and even those who weren’t quite sure.
To me, this is the best result I could have hoped for.
Love it or hate it, it gets people talking.
