Art making, freethinking and being at one with nature is an integral part of Oliver Gedye’s core being. He produces artworks that are kinetic, meditative and interactive – works that use mostly organic, raw, natural media. It is art that can be touched and felt. “I infuse creativity into everything I do. I believe that art is not limited to any medium, but can be an element of life that permeates all we do.”
Working from an isolated old house truck studio, in Anatoki Valley (Golden Bay), set amidst a forested valley within hearing distance of a nearby river, Oliver creates sculptures and jewellery that merge natural themes and forms with sound.
