CV

Roger McFarlane: BFA

Roger was born in Newcastle New South Wales Australia. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Newcastle. Roger has had a fascination for stone sculpture all of his life .He works on a variety of sizes from 30cm to 300cm. His studio is equipped to work in stone and welded steel. Roger also has a small bronze foundry which allows him to cast up to 35kg. He has been fortunate to be invited to create public sculptures in Australia, South Korea, China, Brazil and Switzerland. Roger says enjoys the process and the challenge of creating an art work from strong materials. Roger has also restored damaged marble sculptures.

Roger has acted as a judge for various sculpture exhibitions in Newcastle and Sydney. Roger has also been invited as a guest speaker at various international conferences on sculpture. Roger has exhibited his work in over sixty shows both in Australia and overseas.
CONCEPTS OF WORK

I like to work in both abstract and figurative styles. Capturing the essence of the concept without being excessively littoral is my ambition. The works must speak to the observer and not be deliberately obscure. If an artist has not communicated with his audience, and involved the spectator’s imagination, then he has failed.

My sculptures have to have a well finished appearance. The work of an artist should show that its creator had commitment, dedication and the skills to bring his ideas to fruition.

I work mostly in stone, such as marble and Granite, I also have cast many sculptures in Bronze. Some of my sculptures have been in Wood and Steel. It is important for a sculptor to be versatile and relate to a range of materials.

When commissioned to create a sculpture I try to make an art work that the target audience will appreciate, without compromising my artistic integrity.

TRAINING

Roger was initially trained by Derek Morgan, a gifted sculptor who inspired Roger to continually try harder. Roger learnt to carve marble in Italy. He travelled to Italy in 1994, 1997, and 1999 where he was trained at the Palla Atelier. Claudio Palla is a fourth generation sculptor and is highly respected as a sculptor is proficient at the art of intarsia and sculpture restoration. Roger also completed a fine art degree at the University of Newcastle.
