Assemblage art… driven to a new level.

Ningi, Queensland, Australia

James Corbett used to work in an auto recycling business in Brisbane. Access to vintage car parts (he especially likes 50s and 60s British and French marques, apparently) and a knack for assemblage led him to full-time art-making in 1999. His unique “car part sculptures” can now be found around the world. James does OK by his art as well (the ram above, featuring a body of spark-plugs, reportedly sold for $23,000 lately). Read more about James and his work here.

Thanks to my CIRCLE colleague Carisa Romans for introducing me to Corbett’s remarkable work.
