Entire outdoor mosaic mural installed on site

Artist comment: “Wisdom Tree” was installed immediately outside a Primary School library and so was created purely with the kids in mind. It’s just over 2.5 metres high & 3 metres wide.

At the time I conceived the design I was contemplating the innate wisdom that plants and animals have that seems to almost be lost on many of us humans. We’re rushing around with tasks & missions we think are important where all animals & plants do is just “be”. It’s a concept I wanted to share with the kids through the mosaic.

Rather than create this mural on big boards with a plain background, I decided instead to create smaller boards that were shaped exactly and pieced together for installation directly on the wall. It made installation very simple, but it was quite a job shaping CFC boards like this.

In the end it was quite effective & the kids loved it!
