Johannes (Harry) Pannekoek is a Western Australian artist and sculptor combining his skills in creative design, engineering and material finish. Whilst always being involved in artistic pursuits both personally and commercially, he gained a background in engineering after studying at the University of Western Australia and working with his family’s engineering business.
He then commenced a career spanning 25 years in graphic design, branding and business development before pursuing his interest in visual arts. In 2007 & 2008 he studied Applied Environmental Arts at Central TAFE.
His non-objective artwork arises from the process of constructive manipulation of abstract ideas in parabolic curves, spatial relations, volume and line.
Working primarily with ferrous and non-ferrous metals he currently focuses on a methodology requiring some challenging mathematical and fabrication processes resulting in unique sculptures with a quality material finish.
He has exhibited in various exhibitions including Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2014 and Bondi in 2012 and is represented in a number of public, private and corporate collections.
