A place in the future where the only rhinos that exist, are robotic and made of artificial materials. This futuristic place is potentially non-fictional and the extinction of rhinos is a real threat unless we continue to help the rhinos through conservation projects and create awareness of their plight to avoid the fate of having Robots for Rhinos.</p><h2>Artist statement</h2><p>Joel Cameron is a self taught Sydney based artist with projects ranging from illustration to sculpture. Joel's technique and style is the unique practice of "Dimensional - Illustration" fusing illustrated styles with sculpture to create another dimension for an image to exist in. With a rising artist profile which has seen him be involved in a number of group exhibitions around Australia. Joel recently completed his debut solo exhibition "Balances" which explored the fragile balance of waking life and other worldly realms through a series of prints, paintings and sculpture.</p><h2><strong>Sculpture Details</strong></h2><p><strong>Type :&nbsp;</strong>Small (calf)</p><p><strong>Measurements</strong> : 700mm (h) x 1220mm (l) x 400mm (w)</p><p><strong>Weight </strong>: Approximately 15Kg</p>
