Corrugations: the art of Jeff Thomson

From Arts on Sunday, 1:45 pm on 30 June 2013

Over a thirty year career there's not much that sculptor Jeff Thomson hasn't done with corrugated iron. He's bent it, braided it, cut it, curled it, woven it, welded it, painted it, printed on it, twisted it, built animals and abstract objects and covered entire cars in the stuff. Justin Gregory catches up with him at the Tauranga Art Gallery ahead of a major retrospective of his work, and finds him musing on the possibilities of other materials.
