“The connections between time, place, the environment, nature and mankind.  The sacredness of nature. The effect that has on the environment. And how man should venerate the earth and walk lightly upon it.” Peter Blizzard, 2007

Blizzard’s work is a continuing balance between humankind and nature, expressed through the  use of natural elements contrasted with steel and brass.  In Water Moon and Stone Totem, the selected rocks are posed within a curvilinear structure, a poetic tension between shape and void, and the polished and rough surfaces. These totemic sculptures allow us to meditate on the symbolic and spiritual relationship with nature.  Both works were created in 2006, the same year Blizzard was awarded an OAM for his services to art and the same year he enjoyed a solo exhibition, Sacred Land, at Hakone Open Air Museum in Japan, the only Australian artist to be invited to do so.
