Introduction to Welding

Jason Waterhouse’s sculptural practice is underpinned by ideas of contemporary architecture, urbanisation and how we live with the ‘stuff’ around us. In Waterhouse’s studio, ubiquitous objects such as the body of a car, a gardener’s shed, pencils, tools and tree branches undergo series of interventions resulting in a hybridised object that occupies an uncanny space between the past and the present, the natural and the manufactured.

Jason Waterhouse competed a BFA in sculpture (Monash University) and completed Honours at the VCA in 1999. Over the last 17 years Waterhouse has exhibited his work extensively throughout Australia and, in 2005, was awarded the Moreland Sculpture Prize. Since then he has been exhibited in the prestigious Helen Lempriere, the McClelland Sculpture Prize and the Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture. Waterhouse has held solo exhibitions at Linden Contemporary, Dark Horse Experiment, Stockroom, &Projects and Scienceworks Museum. Waterhouse’s work is held in significant private and public collections and has been commissioned to create major public works for the City of Ballarat and Hepburn Shire, Victoria.
