"When I'm in the studio working on any wood sculpture, I am aware of the creative power flowing through all life and through the wood... I am at peace knowing that I can release the divine force inherent in its substance - a materiality that has come into being over hundreds, or even thousands of years. What an honour to work with these beautiful timbers."
Geoff Bromilow is an Australian wood sculptor who lives in the Adelaide Hills area. Bromilow spends many hours considering each piece of fallen timber before working it into the most beautiful examples of his art form. Bromilow uses River Redgum, Huon and King Billy Pine in his sculptures, salvaged after bushfires or farming activities.
His early career as an arborist in the early 1980s gave Bromilow an unique understanding of the natural beauty of the timber before he refines it into art. He started his own timber recycling business following the Ash Wednesday bushfires that devastated much of south-eastern Australia. As an artist and conservationist, Bromilow began work as a professional wood sculptor in 1995.
Bromilow's award winning work appears in galleries and private collections in Australia, USA, New Zealand, UK, France, Luxemburg, Germany and Scandinavia.
