Angela Polglaze is an internationally renowned sculptor, who carved her way into the history books in the USA, Germany, Korea, Scotland and Japan, with her ability to transform a giant log of wood into incredible works of art using a chainsaw.
Best known for her ‘Cheesy Chick’ collection, Angie’s work is characteristically bright, fun and sometimes cheeky. Angie also carved a catalogue of animals and fantasy creatures, using up to 16 different chainsaws to create one piece of work.
Angie was a founding member of the international movement, ‘Chainsaw Chick’, which mentored women carvers, helping them to succeed in the traditionally male world of power carving.
Sadly, in 2021 Angie lost a fiercely fought battle with breast cancer and these are her final works.
Angie’s work will be on show over the trail weekend, and for sale at Possum Gully Fine Arts Gallery in Adelaide Lead over the Tiny Towns Arts Trail weekend. Possum Gully Fine Arts Gallery celebrates a diversity of artists, styles and media and has been a fixture on the Tiny Towns Arts Trail since the first trail in 2015.
