Chalk Horse presents Echo Point, a solo exhibition by Danny Morse.

The works in Echo Point ­feature a series of sculptures carved from wood salvaged from a large storm in the area and left by the SES (State Emergency Services). The exhibition generates the nostalgia of a hot Australian summer’s day in a suburban backyard – the sculptures take the form of cricket bats, a large balance bird, a watermelon, and a Saxa salt dispenser (that has been in every pantry, canteen, Scout hall and sausage sizzle for over 100 years virtually unchanged).

For Morse, they are the props that remain in the periphery composing our memories, and they often go unnoticed until they are drawn or reproduced by hand and isolated. But their original function whether it is to be eaten or played with is now redundant. The plastic salt dispenser becomes solid, wooden, saltless and the brands manufactured font is now hand drawn.

The gallery is adhering to COVID-19 social distancing measures. Please contact the gallery before you visit to arrange a suitable viewing time.

This exhibition can also be viewed on the gallery website. View exhibition here.
