Andrew Hustwaite is a Melbourne based sculptor working predominantly through the medium of metals (steel, brass, bronze, gold). Hustwaite’s
formal qualifications attained include a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from Monash University in 2010 with solo shows dating back over ten years.
His geometric sculptures as a system of formal exploration and experimentation stem from a fascination with the fundamental structures of our physical world. The forms exist as a product of innate elemental forces – they are arguably geological sculptures.
Themes dwell on compilation, extrusion, expansion, contraction, growth and decay. Hustwaite often takes a singular naturally occurring geometric form and uses this as the building blocks for codified abstract constructions that come into existence as a consequence of the predetermined order that is imposed on their formation; the end points of which are arbitrary.
