Introduction to Welding

Jason Waterhouse’s sculptural practice is underpinned by ideas of contemporary architecture, urbanization 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 hybridized object that occupies an uncanny space between the past and the present, the natural and the manufactured.

Jason Waterhouse completed a BFA in sculpture at Monash University, going on to completed Honors 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 Sculpture Award, the McLelland 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 he has been commissioned to create major public works for the City of Ballarat and Hepburn Shire, Victoria.
