Listing Details

Corrugated iron chickens, cows and other animals, an HQ holden car which is part of the Te Papa collection  origami-like iron birds are some of the unique objects Jeff Thomson (1957 -) has just created.

Thomson has changed the popular perception of corrugated iron, and it is now seen, not just as a building material, but as an art form as well.  

Born in Auckland, Thomson completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Elam in 1981. Thomson went south to the rural area surrounding Dunedin. His Roadside Farms exhibition at the Bowen Galleries, Wellington, in 1984, was a collection of decorated rural letterboxes and corrugated iron animals.

In 1982 he attended Auckland Teachers College and taught at secondary schools until 1986, when he became a full-time artist.
