Ingrid Morley's sculpture is a curious mix of the primitive, playful and sensuous. Human and animal forms predominate. Her work grows out of her South African childhood, the study of veterinary science in London and her love of Australian landscape. In recent years, especially after an important stay in France in 2003 and China in 2006, she has been exploring ever new ways of making sculpture, assembling found objects and making maquettes out of paper or card for fabricating in stainless steel or copper. She hasn't abandoned clay, bronze and fibreglass, but she seeks to match her growing repertoire of forms and ideas for sculpture with the most telling and memorable of means. Her monumental bronze ‘Stations of the Cross' in Rookwood Cemetery and various contributions to ‘Sculpture by the sea' since reveal her to be one of the liveliest and most interesting of a newer generation of figurative sculptors working in Sydney.
