  Denese Oates, who has been exhibiting sculpture for over thirty years, works primarily with copper and corten steel. The strength of her choice of mediums is often in direct contrast with the transient and fragile organic forms that she depicts. Of this exhibition, Denese comments; “Ratoon is an exhibition of mixed media sculptures exploring the idea that inspiration springs from a myriad of places, and that a universe of knowledge may be encased in small packages, ready to burst into the sunlight.” Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is represented in many collections including Parliament House, Artbank, University of New South Wales, Christchurch City Collection (NZ) and many Australian regional galleries.
