The marvellous wall sculpture, "Gorgonia 15", was created by Australian artist Timothy Horn in his American studio in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
Working across several disciplines and with a wide range of materials, Horn draws from a broad bank of craft skills to create artworks that exist at the crossroads of real and fictional worlds. His creative focus, he explains, is 'the meeting point between the natural and constructed worlds? the area of slippage between the organic and artificial.’ "Gorgonia 15" is on display now at the #PowerhouseMuseum as part of #FantasticalWorlds
