About Charlie Trivers

Charlie Trivers is an Australian sculptor who lives and works on the Central Coast north of Sydney NSW. He has a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the UNSW College of Fine Arts Sydney. His sculpture practice spans over 35 years and is a member of the Sculpture by the Sea Bondi Decade Club. Trivers was awarded the Kodak Sculpture Prize in 2004 for his sculpture ‘Fishbottle Quartet’. He has exhibited in over 100 group exhibitions including the 10th Kajima Sculpture Competition in Tokyo and Osaka in 2007 and the Toyamura International Sculpture Biennale in Hokkaido Japan in 2004. Over his career Trivers has explored various themes and worked with a variety of materials and scales. Common to all is a keen interest in the natural coastal environment; a social commentary to the human impact on the planet and humour as a communication device. More recently he has endeavoured to make his sculptural practice as carbon neutral as possible and uses environmentally sustainable certified plantation timbers and or recycled timbers in his work.

2022 SWELL ARTWORK – Infinite Attractors, Charlie Trivers

The sculpture is one continuous loop having no beginning or end. It is a metaphor for life, not just humanity but also the ocean, since the future of both are inextricably linked.
