Rachelle Austen — 'Mobilis Animo Duplici Ochre' Sculpture, 2023

Mobilis Animo Duplici Ochre, translated from Latin "Shifting Mind", celebrates the human brain's plasticity to find balance. Momentum is a series of ceramic sculptures that explore the principle of moments in physics. These sculptures are designed to be displayed on the wall, upright, flat and on their side. The sculptures invite the viewer to reflect on the ever-changing nature of balance and consider the forces at work in maintaining it.

Rachelle Austen of ‘Tiny Time’ is a a ceramic artist, living and working on her bush block
in the Macedon Ranges on Dja Dja Wurrung country. Rachelle pushes her material to the extremes with the intent of causing cracks and fissures into the delicately thin androbust solid forms, pushing the material before and beyond breaking, a metaphor for the resilience of existence, the fragility of life and most importantly, the beauty that may be found in the broken, and finding acceptance in imperfections. She has a background in Industrial Design, graduating from a Bachelors at Monash University.
