Artist's Description

‘Australian Corrugated Iron’ Series by Lexa Harpell.

A collection of my favourite Corrugated Iron images from New South Wales – Australia.

A close up collection of the great Aussie icon – ‘gal iron’. Shapes, colours and its spectacular rusting colours and textures – wet and dry.

Corregated galvanised iron became a strong Australian cultural identity and ‘gal iron’ ‘tin roof’ an Australian vernacular from the mid 1800’s.

Widely used particularly in rural areas for roofs, cladding and water tanks.
Lightweight and strong and rolled into into linear corregation pattern incresed the bending strength of the thin sheet of iron.

Galvanising inhibits the corrosion of steel, although not rusting from the presence of oxygen and water. The differencing colours and patterns of rusting is caused when Iron is subjected to temperate fluctuations, nature’s minerals, acid in the rains and chemicals.
