The large-scale corten steel sculptures and smaller sized bronze works by Jimmy Rix are exemplars of his sense of humour, engagement with Australiana, interest in scale and concern for the environment. Alongside rebellious roos, Rix also casts horses, sheep and utilitarian objects as the actors of his narrative-based works.
